Stora enso shuts SC PM8 at Kvarnsveden

In February 2017, Stora Enso Oyj announced the permanent shut-down of PM8 at Kvarnsveden mill in Sweden due to structural weakening of magazine paper demand in Europe. The shutdown was on June 21, 2017.

PM8 had an annual capacity of 100 000 tonnes of SC uncoated magazine paper. Improved newsprint will continue to be made on PM10.

In Europe, Stora Enso still produces SC paper on Kvarnsveden’s PM12 as well as at Maxau, Germany, Langerbrugge, Belgium, and Dawang, China.
