By 2030, Arkhangelsk PPM, JSC plans to reduce direct greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions by 55% to the level of 1990. Their reduction will be achieved in principle directions: reduction of energy-output ratio, growth of fuel efficiency, growth of biomass amount in fuel balance, change to less carbon-intensive fossil fuel. Engineering and organizational decisions are developed for each direction. It was announced by Deputy Director General of the mill Irina Galakhova at plenary session "Pulp and Paper Industry - leader of closed-cycle bioeconomics" in the context of the 16 international exhibition and forum of pulp and paper, forest, processing and packing industries PAP-FOR in Saint-Petersburg.
