la rinconadaProtecting the incredible biodiversity of La Rinconada

On a small patch of land bordering the Rio Tacuarembo, UPM is working to protect a unique landscape and biodiversity hotspot, unlike any other in Uruguay.

Among UPM’s 22 conservation areas, perhaps none is as unique as La Rinconada. Situated just north of the river in a remote part of the province of Tacuarembó, La Rinconada is home to incredibly rare mobile dunes, which are only found in this part of Uruguay.

“These are fragile ecosystems, particularly the mobile dunes, and have very little territorial representation in the country,” says Ivan Grela, Environmental Affairs Coordinator at UPM Forestal Oriental.

Stora Enso agrava la presión sobre Ence y sobre el conjunto del sector

El grupo papelero finlandés se desploma en Bolsa y arrastra al conjunto del sector europeo después de anunciar una caída del 35% en su beneficio y de rebajar sus previsiones para el cuarto trimestre por la debilidad de la demanda. Las presiones bajistas alcanzan a Ence justo antes de publicar, al cierre, sus resultados.

Los recelos de los inversores hacia el valor más castigado del Ibex en 2019 afloraron de nuevo durante la sesión de ayer. Ence registró la segunda mayor caída del índice selectivo, un 2,36%, y elevó al 33,5% las pérdidas acumuladas desde enero.

UPM alemaniaUPM invests in Germany to reduce costs and emissions 

UPM will strengthen its cost competitiveness and reduce its CO2 emissions by 5 % by investing in a Combined-Heat-Power (CHP) plant at its Nordland paper mill in Dörpen, Germany. The new facility supports the German energy transition “Energiewende” by contributing to the stability of the public power system.

The EUR 95 million investment to a new, highly efficient 80 MW gas fired power plant is financially attractive and further improves UPM’s environmental performance. The investment has a payback time of 3 years. The plant, planned to go on grid in Q3 2022, will cover the mill’s heat demand while enabling active participation in the increasingly volatile German electricity markets.

ntroduces digitalHolmen introduces digital wood scanning

Holmen is now taking another step towards more resource-efficient and digital forestry. Through an advanced three-dimensional image analysis of the forest company’s wood deliveries, Holmen will be able to increase the efficiency of transport and boost the added value of the wood.

“This is a climate-smart solution that makes wood scanning more accurate and the whole process more efficient. Unmanned measurement terminals offer the possibility to be open around the clock, creating greater accessibility and fewer queues. In this way, we can make better use of transport resources, which is good for both the work environment and the climate,” says Andreas Rastbäck, Marketing Director at Holmen Skog.
