We operate one of North America’s largest, single-line bleached kraft pulp mills.

Using our advanced processes, we produce approximately 620,000 air-dried metric tonnes of elemental-chlorine-free pulp annually.
Our kraft pulp is a clean, wood-based, biodegradable raw material made from breaking down the fibrous part of trees. The kraft process begins with raw wood, made up of fibres called cellulose. The cellulose fibres are stuck together with a natural glue called lignin. The process separates the lignin from the cellulose fibres, leaving a pulp mixture and becomes the main ingredient in the papermaking process.
