Tembec is expanding its product repertoire to offer Forest Stewardship Council-certified softwood kraft and Temcell high yield pulps. The FSC is the only system that tracks market pulp from the forest to the final product.
The company’s Smooth Rock Falls and Temiscaming operations both recently received FSC certification. Its Skookumchuck softwood kraft pulp mill in BC is in the process of conducting its chain of custody audit and expects to introduce additional FSC-certified NBSK pulp as early as next month.
Combined, the three operations produce roughly 770,000 metric tonnes of NBSK and BTCMP high yield pulps on an annual basis. They use FSC wood fibre from an amalgamated area that spans 10 million acres.
