SCA to hike price for bleached softwood kraft pulp from October
September 9, 2020
SWEDEN (News release) -- SCA increases the price on bleached softwood kraft pulp (NBSK) by $40 per tonne. The new price, $880 per tonne, is valid from October 1, 2020.
"We see a growing demand for pulp and our stocks are decreasing", says Henning Ellström, VP sales and marketing pulp. "Furthermore, the pulp supply this autumn is limited, not the least by maintenance stops among pulp producers. Many planned maintenance stops this spring were postponed until this autumn."
The core of SCA's business is the forest, Europe's largest private forest holding.
