Nov 1 2022The forest industry generates steam by mainly combusting black liquor and wood residues. The steam is needed for the manufacturing processes with part of it converted to electricity in cogeneration units. The Finnish forest industry used PJ of peat in energy production in 2019 The Finnish mills have progressed in fuel switching as
Recovery of forest residues. Forest residues consist of small trees branches tops and unmerchantable wood left in the forest after the cleaning thinning or final felling of forest stands used as fuel without any intermittent applications. Three main sources of forest residues can be distinguished slash from final fellings slash and small
The forest industry provides a useful example of an industry that generally resembles a pseudo (nonclosed) ecological web being fortunate as it is in its reliance on wholly renewable raw materials (natural fibres that can potentially be produced in a sustainable way) and the fact that these renewable fibre containing raw materials also satisfy the main production process feed stock needs
The Finnish Forest Centre employs 575 people (year 2020). Forester Ari Eini has been the director of the Finnish Forest Centre since 2012.

While mills have spent significantly on technology to reduce residues there simply isn t a way to stop sawmills from turning out chips sawdust and bark. Every mill is unique but a decent rule of thumb is for every thousand board feet of lumber produced two tons of residues are produced—one ton of clean chips and another ton of bark and
Forests cover more than 70 per cent of the land area in Finland. A total of million hectares is available for timber production 61 of which is privately owned. Annual forest growth in Finland is approx. 110 million cubic meters whereas the annual logging volume is approximately 60 to 75 million cubic meters.
Take a look at the map below use the slider to compare the years 2000 and 2018. In 2000 the forests covered million ha of Finland while in 2018 the forests covered million ha. In only 18 years time the coverage has increased by 10 . Forests have expanded in all regions of Finland and this development is projected to continue.
of the Finnish forest industry. The main markets of mills in Finland are in Europe although products are in fact exported to some 160 countries. Europe accounts for nearly 80 of the total in 2005 the EU countries accounted two thirds and the euro countries for about 45 . The single most important countries were Germany and the UK.
Municipal harvest levels in 2007 were obtained from the statistical department at Metla. With the supply levels of 2007 the maximum amounts of logging residues and stumps that could be collected using the figures in Table 1 are millions m 3 and millions m 3 on when we explore the harvest levels deviating from those in 2007 we scale the municipal harvest levels
