Canfor Pulp extends commercial downtime at Talyor BCTM pulp mill

09 Sep 2019 − 

Output at Taylor BCTM pulp mill will be reduced by a total of 65,000 t in the third quarter.

Canfor Pulp, the pulp division of the Canadian Forest Products (Canfor) company, has extended the commercial downtime at the Taylor bleached chemi-thermomecanical (BCTM) pulp mill for three more weeks until the end of September. This would allow to build fibre inventory in advance of restarting the mill, the company explained.

Taylor was originally scheduled for a temporariry production downtime from 29 June through 5 August due to "weaker market conditions and short-term fibre constraints resulting from industry-wide curtailments" in British Columbia. The downtime was then extended by further five weeks to 9 September and then again to 30 September.

Combined, summer curtailments will reduce BCTMP output at Cannfor's Taylor mill by approximately 65,000 t.
