Stora Enso starts production of pellets in Ždírec

Stora Enso is expanding its pellet business in the Czech Republic. The new pellet line at Stora Enso’s Ždírec unit has started regular operations in June. Marketing will be carried out both for small bags on pallets and bulk goods.

Stora Enso pellets are made from sawmill by-products; chips, sawdust and wood shavings. The pellet production at Ždírec is self-sufficient in raw material as the pellet production is integrated directly after the sawing line.

The pellet line at Ždírec is Stora Enso’s seventh pellet production line. The company has pellet production also in Estonia, Finland, Russia and Sweden with total annual capacity 320 000 tonnes.
