Segezha Group replaces precipitators at its Segezha plant in Russia

Segezha Group has launched the final stage of its long-term environmental program to overhaul soda recovery boilers and replace electrostatic precipitators at the Segezha pulp and paper mill in Russia. The total cost of the project is around 2 billion rubles ($21 million).

In February, Kondor-Eco JSC (Semibratovo) completed the delivery of its equipment which replaces the old filters – on boiler #3. The replacement will begin in March. Commissioning is scheduled for early fall. Boiler #4 will also be overhauled this year. All work is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.

The environmental program of complete replacement of electrostatic precipitators and repair of all soda recovery boilers will significantly reduce the plant’s environmental footprint. The company’s new filters will provide almost absolute trapping of limescale particles, at over 99%.

“Segezha Group has made substantial investments in the overhaul of soda recovery boilers. The company systematically reduces the environmental footprint of its production facilities. In Karelia, work is carried out primarily for the benefit of the people of Segezha, our mill team and the general environmental well-being of the region,” explains Peter Podelenyuk, CEO of the Pulp and Paper Mill of Segezha.
