Fibrek plans to take twelve days of commercial downtime at the Saint-Félicien northern bleached softwood kraft (NBSK) pulp mill to control the pulp inventory.
Virgin and recycled kraft market pulp manufacturer Fibrek intends to curtail production of northern bleached softwood kraft pulp (NBSK) at the Saint-Félicien pulp mill in the Lac Saint-Jean region, Quebec. The 12 days market-related downtime, starting on 23 June, will impact NBSK production by approximately 12,000 tonnes and should give the company a better control of its pulp inventory, Fibrek reported.
Saint-Félicien pulp mill offers an annual capacity of 375,000 tonnes of NBSK pulp. According to Fibrek, NBSK pulp produced at the Saint-Félicien mill is the pulp of choice for LWC, SC-A, specialty products, and premium tissue paper products.
