According to a report this past by Publics, Sofia, Bulgaria, Svilosa is directing its efforts towards sustaining its current paper production capacity of 150,000 metric tpy, before going for the 200,000 metric tpy milestone.

As part of this process, the Bulgarian paper producer Svilosa AD will invest EUR 30 million in new energy cogeneration technology. The planned power and heat generation will be also able to burn biomass produced by the waste water treatment plant of the nearby town of Svishtov, on the Danube. The paper mill will also be boasting a new substation, which should be ready by the end of 2015, Krasimir Datchev, majority owner of Svilosa told journalists this past Wednesday.

The new cogeneration is part of a vast investment program worth EUR 250 million. It is meant to boost the production capacity of the Svilosa mill, which exports 95% of the bleached hardwood kraft pulp it produces.
