The new technology used at our plant lays the groundwork for environmentally friendly production, which we consider extremely important.
Estonian Cell environmental advantages are:
• sulfur free production
• chlorine free bleaching
• low fresh water consumption
• high yield for wood consumption
Stringent environmental requirements are applicable for our company. Estonian Cell has been issued Integrated Environmental Permit nr 1.
The plant’s biological water treatment plant was a major investment. It allows both Biological Oxygen Demand and Chemical Oxygen Demand purification level of over 90%, which is the highest in this branch of industry. The purified waste water is conducted via a 9.5 km long pipe to the Bay of Mahu, with a discharge reservoir 1.5 km from the coast, at a depth of 10 meters on the seabed.
Modern production standards and environmentally friendly technology contribute to compliance with international environment and quality standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001
