Kemijärvi Bio Refinery, previously known as Boreal Bioref Oy, is preparing a €1 billion investment in Kemijärvi to establish a bioproduct plant. The construction phase will create around 2,700 jobs, while the operational phase will provide employment for 185 individuals. With the establishment of the bio refinery, over 1,100 permanent jobs will be created in various sectors in East Lapland. The refinery will utilize approximately 3.6 million cubic meters of thinnings wood and wood chips from northern Finland annually as raw materials.

During both the construction and operational phases, there will be a significant demand for services from businesses and public service providers in the vicinity of the investment site in Kemijärvi and throughout East Lapland.

The goal of the ”Forest In – Service Needs and Resources for Forest Industry Investments in East Lapland” project (A73984) was to support the participation of small and medium-sized enterprises from East Lapland and Lapland in the construction and operation of the bioproduct plant in Kemijärvi.

The project aimed to identify and compile the service potential, quality, references, capabilities, and willingness of local and regional companies to participate in the construction and operation phases of the bioproduct plant. Information about services and needs (from businesses, public entities, and communities) was generated, along with general information for the preparatory project website.

The project was administered by Itä-Lapin kuntayhtymä (East Lapland municipal federation). It had a total budget of €328,378, with 70% funded by Regional Council of Lapland / European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and Structural Funds and 30% by the municipalities of East Lapland.
