ENVIRONMENTAL COURT HAS REVIEWED THE CONDITIONS AT VALLVIK MILL
“The dissension shows the complexity of this matter. We intend to examine the possibility of appealing the ruling and will announce our decision within 10 days,” says Rottneros President and CEO Lars Blecko.
The fact that the biopurification plant, which involves an investment of around SEK 100 million, must, according to the Court’s decision, be in place in the beginning of 2010 means that most of the construction will take place in 2009.
