Hardwood pulp prices mostly stable in December
Market reports indicated stable to slightly higher prices for hardwood pulp grades at the end of December. “The absurd announcement of an increase in prices to $730 as of 1 December did not come anywhere close to implementation, but at least it served to arrest the fall in prices", a EUWID respondent observed. In fact, even slight increases were reportedly achieved in some cases. Prices of mixed hardwood pulp also remained stable in December.
