Norske Skog Skogn, founded in 1962, is one of the largest newsprint mills in Europe and serves customers worldwide.
The mill is in the county of Nord-Trøndelag. It has its own port facilities and power production, and is the largest producer of newsprint in Norway.
The power plant is an integrated part of the mill, producing both steam and electricity. Wood is the largest source of fuel.
The thermal power plant and steam was upgraded in 2012.
Biomass such as wood, plants, waste, garbage, landfill gases and alcohol fuels generate bioenergy.
