Scotland to Get Renewable Energy Power Plant

UPM will build a new renewable energy power plant at its Caledonian paper mill in Irvine, Scotland. The new boiler will utilize a 350,000-ton combination of biomass- and site-derived residues as its primary fuel.

The total investment cost is approximately Euro 88 million [~US$117 million].The new power plant, once operating in the first quarter of 2009, will continue to reduce UPM’s carbon emissions by 75,000 tons annually. During the last ten years, the company has reduced its production related fossil CO2 emissions by 25% by investing in biofuel-based energy generation and in energy efficiency. The new power plant at Caledonian paper mill, which will assist the Scottish Executive in achieving its 2010 national renewables generation target of 18%, reinforces UPM’s Caledonian site as being one of the larger investments in Scotland.
