For example, we are interested in finding new technologies for cost-efficient collection of various waste streams, and platform opportunities for “material stream match making”.

Sustainability is a crucial and integral part of everything Stora Enso does. Consequently, we are now looking for solutions to help us capture carbon emissions from our mills before they make it into the atmosphere. Furthermore, we are looking for innovations for sustainable harvesting and forest management along with new industrial solutions which could help us run operations with less energy and best available water treatment – making more with less and cleanly.
