Paper Excellence recently announced that it is converting its northern bleached softwood kraft (NBSK) production at its Howe Sound facility to produce unbleached kraft pulp (UKP).

The company noted in a statement that the demand in the global market is strong for UKP manufactured at its Crofton mill. The decision to convert the Howe Sound facility to a UKP production is to help fulfill increasing customer demand for this product.

UKP has a lighter environmental impact as no bleaching chemicals are needed and a higher yield of residual wood chips are converted into useful pulp fibre.
