NordFuel Oy is planning to build a biorefinery that would produce ethanol fuel from wood next to the Kanteleen Voima’s power plant in Haapavesi.

The operation of the existing power plant would be changed into an energy center of the biorefinery, which would produce the heating and cooling energy needed by the site. Read more
