Each year, we continue to look for ways to improve energy efficiencies throughout our pulp and paper operations.
Our Maryvale mill is the largest industrial generator of base load renewable energy in Victoria, through the production of black liquor biofuel, a renewable fuel which is a by-product of the pulp and paper manufacturing process. In 2013, we produced 670,000 tonnes of black liquor.
Our operations use energy from both black liquor and direct energy sources from fossil fuels such as natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), diesel and petrol. We also purchase electricity, an indirect energy source, to operate manufacturing, processing and office sites located around Australia.
