Kanteleen Voima is planning to build a biorefinery that would produce ethanol fuel from wood next to the thermal power plant in Haapavesi. The refinery would produce lignin and biogas as well as sludge, which could be used as fertiliser, as by-products. At the same time, the existing power plant would be developed into a modern CHP plant.
