The Environmental Impact Assessment Delegation has granted the sawmill group Bergkvist Siljan permission to increase the production of sawn wood products at the Insjön sawmill by approximately 60%, from 400 000 to 650 000 m3 per year.
This a very positive decision, says Anders Nilsson, CEO of Bergkvist Siljan. The decision means that Bergkvist Siljan gradually will increase the production in a first phase from 400 000 to 500 000 m3 sawn wood products.
We see a significant increase in global demand of sawn wood products. The demand is driven by consumers choosing sustainable materials to a larger extent. In addition, the technology to build tall buildings in wood has developed, says Anders Nilsson.
