The corrugated cardboard producer is building a plant at the Nettingsdorf site to generate environmentally friendly district heating from up to 25 megawatts of waste heat, with the project scheduled to be completed by the autumn of 2022. In this way, the company is expanding its sustainability efforts in production. Previously, measures were taken that led to a significant reduction in the energy used in production, mainly electricity and heat. The CO₂
emissions per tonne of paper have been reduced to about one-tenth of the original level since the year 1990, which marked the beginning of international efforts to cut down on CO₂

The Smurfit Kappa Group plc is an Irish company in the packaging industry. Smurfit Kappa is the leading supplier of corrugated cardboard, corrugated base paper and solid board packaging on the European market. "We make waste heat available and enable it to operate a district heating network, which could not be used in our production process or only very poorly. In turn, this will result in massive CO₂ savings for heat customers", explains Günter Hochrathner, CEO Smurfit Kappa Nettingsdorf, in commenting on the current construction project.
