Helsinki, Finnland -- Stora Enso and its partner Alucha Recycling Technologies have been granted the 'Best of the Best' LIFE Environment Project award for 2010. This award is granted by the European Union to recognise projects that have a positive impact on the environment. Stora Enso and Alucha Recycling Technologies received the award for developing and investing in innovative recycling technology in Stora Enso's Barcelona Mill. The new technology separates plastic-aluminium laminate from recovered beverage cartons by a process that enables both fibre and aluminium to be fully reused, and the plastic to be utilised to generate energy in the mill.
