Kemira Oyj: Kemira shortlisted in the EU Sustainable Energy Awards

Kemira's site in Helsingborg, Sweden has been shortlisted in the EU
Sustainable Energy Awards 2016 for industrial symbiosis that facilitates
sharing recovered energy from industrial processes.

Kemira's site in Helsingborg operates under the name of Industry Park of
Sweden (IPOS). The business idea of IPOS is industrial symbiosis, which means
that all businesses based in the industry park cooperate in order to achieve
resource efficiency, reduce costs and to minimize their environmental impact.
The site currently hosts around 20 different companies within chemical and
food industry, logistics and service. All companies within the park
collaborate around energy, material, utilities, logistics, infrastructure and
services.

An important part of the industrial symbiosis is sharing of the recovered
energy from Kemira's own processes. Today, 600 GWh of energy is recovered
every year to replace the consumption of primary fuels not only for Kemira
but also for the companies within IPOS and Helsingborg City. This recovered
energy is the base load of the district heating network in Helsingborg,
accounting for 1/3 of the total yearly heat demand.

As Kemira's recovered energy is produced by exothermal reactions and by heat
recovery from product flows it does not generate any CO2 emissions. If the
corresponding volume of energy were to be produced by for example natural
gas, yearly emissions would be 120 000 tons CO2 per year.

"Our aim has been to create added value and to reduce costs and environmental
impact by innovative cooperation", saysLennart Albertsson
, Director, Pulp&Paper, Kemira Helsingborg.

The EU Sustainable Energy Awards recognize outstanding innovation in energy
efficiency and renewables. Around 200 submissions for the 2016 Awards have
been evaluated, and the nominees have been chosen from a shortlist of the
year's most successful projects for clean, secure and efficient energy in
three categories: Consumers, Businesses and Public sector. Three winners
among nine nominees will be unveiled on 14 June as part of the 2016 EU
Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) in Brussels.
