Mercer International to curtail Celgar mill in B.C.

January 17, 2023  By P&PC Staff


Mercer International’s Celgar mill in British Columbia will face three weeks of downtime due to the lack of proper fibre availability. The company expects this curtailment to commence in March 2023.

“We are disappointed that the current fibre supply situation β€” and in particular, the lack of available residual fibre for pulp β€” has led us to this difficult position forcing us to curtail. The continued fibre supply problem is a source of disappointment for our employees, our suppliers, the Castlegar region and the province at large. We are hopeful for a resolution in short order,” said Juan Carlos Bueno, Mercer’s president and CEO.

Mercer International has an annual production capacity of 2.3 million tonnes of pulp.
