Pulp – only the highest quality fibers are good enough

We offer pulp grades made from 100% primary fibers, ensuring first-rate quality in terms of strength and purity for softwoods and formation and uniformity for hardwoods.

Strong and Pure: Renewable. Recyclable. Biodegradable.

Billerud Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) pulp is made of 100% primary fibers from Scandinavian spruce and pine. In the harsh climate, coniferous trees grow slowly and develop long fibers that can be recycled five to seven times. NSBK pulp enables an efficient manufacturing process resulting in strong, pure and first-class products.

Premium Pulp: Quality, Uniformity, Versatility

Quinnesec® Hi-Maple Northern Hardwood Pulp is produced out of our Quinnesec, Michigan, production unit. This is one of the industry’s premier pulps, with a high percentage of maple fiber, ideally suited for the most demanding printing and writing paper grades. Our pulp is also an excellent choice for specialty grades, and tissue manufacturers value it for its special contribution to softness.

Responsible forestry

Keeping the future in mind, our raw materials are taken from forests where replanting is a matter of course. We work with the FSC® and PEFC™ certification systems, which guarantee that our wood raw materials can be traced back to their origins. The parts of the tree not used for pulp are used as biofuel.
