Envor Protech Oy has developed the technology for the first, commercial full-scale biogas plant that will use forest-based slurries from pulping process as the feedstock.   

EcoEnergy SF Oy, a sister company to Envor Protech, is currently building a biogas plant in the area of MetsäFibre Bioproduct Mill in Äänekoski. The biogas plant will process the wastewater slurries of the Bioproduct Mill, and turn those into biogas for transportation, fertilizers and solid biofuel.

"This project is first-of-its kind, globally. In the future, there is a vast potential to expand this technology to both existing paper and pulp mills as well as the next generation bioproduct mills still in drawing boards," says Mika Laine, the Chairman of Envor Group Oy and EcoEnergy SF Oy.

EcoEnergy SF Oy as well as Envor Protech Oy are owned by Envor Group Oy, Eko-Kvintti Oy and Protech AD Services Oy.
