Our efforts to reduce CO2 emissions never stop
CO2 emissions are one of the most important fields of action for increasing sustainability. Governments and industry associations have set high goals in this area. With the Low Carbon Paper Mill, we are setting an important course for CO2 reduction in paper production.
Targeting CO2-neutral paper production by 2030 with the help of digital and efficiency-enhancing applications as well as disruptive technologies and the use of renewable energies
Our innovative process technologies increase the efficiency of paper production – with the potential to reduce the carbon footprint by 20%
Our digital solutions offer the potential for further reductions of 10%
Electrification of the manufacturing process, using renewable energy and energy storage, massively improves the carbon footprint of paper manufacturing
Working on new, disruptive approaches to paper production – with the potential to reduce CO2 emissions by more than 50%
Achieving CO2 neutrality at all our sites worldwide since 2022 – zero CO2 footprint created by plant operation
Voith has developed systems and products for all paper grades that effectively save energy along the entire process chain – and also recover and generate energy from renewable sources. Our goal is to cut energy consumption for paper manufacturing in half. This becomes possible both through the use of innovative technologies and the reduction of resource consumption. By increasing the portion of recovered paper, noticeably less power is needed.
Papermaking for Life
Paper is the ideal material on the path to greater sustainability.
With our technologies and solutions, we ensure the most sustainable paper production.
