Pöyry's Green Mill Index helps the forerunners of sustainability - Propapier PM2 mill site evaluated
PÖYRY PLC Press release 4 January 2012
The environmental sustainability of Progroup AG's Propapier´s PM2 mill site, located in Germany, has been successfully analysed with Pöyry´s Green Mill Index.
"We want to be forerunners concerning environmental sustainability issues. Pöyry's Green Mill Index gave us a complete overview of our production and mill site performance. Although our performance was excellent, there is always room for some improvement and we know now where to concentrate" says Mr. Resvanis from Propapier.
The Green Mill Index is a tool developed by Pöyry for pulp and paper mills. The index represents the relations of different indicators and overall environmental performance of a mill and helps to measure e.g. energy or water efficiency. Many of the indicators used in Pöyry´s Green Mill Index are based on European Commission standards for best available technology, known as BAT levels.
The Green Mill Index is a natural extension to Pöyry's services dedicated to balanced sustainability and continuous improvement. As a leading consulting and engineering company in the pulp and paper industry, Pöyry is committed to designing mills that are technologically advanced, operationally efficient and meet stringent environmental standards.
Progroup AG produces corrugated board formats as its core business. The Propapier PM2 produces high-quality corrugated board base papers exclusively on the basis of waste paper. The special technology of PM2 makes it possible to produce lightweight, fibre-saving new papers for lighter and at the same time more efficient corrugated boards of the "next generation".
