The energy and chemicals business plays a key role in the development strategy of the Swedish Södra Group and is an area that will grow and further contribute to a fossil fuel-free future. As a result, the Södra Bioproducts product line is currently being formed in the company.

The energy and chemicals business will continue to grow and provide additional support to Södra in building the green economy of the future. Johannes Bogren, currently vice president of Södra Cell Bioproducts, will become vice president of marketing and sales for the new division.

Södra Bioproducts will be responsible for developing and optimizing the existing business, including electricity, district heating, dissolving cellulose, biomethanol, tall oil and turpentine. These activities currently generate 7% of the group's revenue.

Responsibility for production will remain with the various divisions of Södra.
