Paper Excellence has announced that its Catalyst Crofton mill will take a market curtailment of about two weeks in November 2021. The company is taking this step in response to ongoing global logistics challenges.

This curtailment will be coordinated with a maintenance shutdown of the mill’s biomass power boiler that had been planned earlier. The boiler shutdown will have a significant impact on the energy costs. Hence, both the paper and pulp operations at the mill are being curtailed from Nov. 9 to 24 while the boiler maintenance work is being completed.

Due to this outage, Catalyst Crofton expects to lose around 15,000 air dry tonnes of paper and 19,000 air dry tonnes of NBSK pulp.
