Global megatrends and increasing awareness of sustainable production and environmental performance are transforming the pulp and paper industry as we know it. They are driving the need for reduced emissions, decreased water and fossil-fuel consumption and for more efficient production processes. The pulp and paper industry is also leading the way in new innovations aimed at replacing unsustainable plastics, microplastics, textile fabrics and fossil fuels, for example. Metso is committed to helping the industry meet the growing and changing demands, and capturing opportunities presented by the new emerging bioproducts.
