Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp Production Cost Report

NBSK pulps are long, slender fibers with excellent bonding and tensile properties that are added to paper furnishings to give structure. It is primarily used in printing & writing papers (printing and writing paper, specialty grades) and tissue. However, it is also used as a raw material in several industries, including furniture manufacturing, construction materials, and automotive parts.

It has high strength and stiffness, which helps boost the paper's tensile strength, tear resistance, and water retention, making it ideal for packaging applications as well as tissue production. Standard NBSK Pulp is made using wood that has been treated with chlorine and other chemicals to make it whiter since it is employed to make products like paper, printing and writing paper, specialty paper, cardboard boxes, milk cartons, etc.

It has high strength and stiffness, which helps boost the paper's tensile strength, tear resistance, and water retention, making it ideal for packaging applications as well as tissue production. Moreover, NBSK-based tissue papers are applied in the manufacturing of baby diapers, feminine hygiene products, and adult incontinence products.

The market for (NBSK) Pulp is majorly driven by its demand for its use in the production of paper, tissue products, specialty paper, and paperboard of specialty grades, as it provides excellent strength, tear resistance, smoothness, and surface properties, which significantly increases its demand to a great extent.

It is extensively utilized in the production of facial tissues, toilet paper, specialty paper, etc., due to its high strength and water retention properties, in the production of furniture components, cardboard boxes, and milk cartons, which amplifies its demand in tissue, specialty paper, furniture, and packaging industries, respectively. Moreover, it is also employed in the manufacture of baby diapers, feminine hygiene products, and adult incontinence products, which increases its demand in the hygiene products industry.

Additionally, the market for Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp is also being driven by the increasing demand for high-quality paper products, rising awareness regarding environmental concerns, and growing adoption of sustainable practices. Furthermore, the growing shift towards recycled materials is expected to boost the market demand further. Additionally, several factors influence industrial Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp procurement, such as the cost and availability of its feedstock (lumber wood), the market prices of Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp, environmental regulations, and its distribution, which includes trading and transportation, logistics, etc.

Raw Material for Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp Production

According to the Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp manufacturing plant project report, the major raw material for Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp production includes Lumber Woods.

Manufacturing Process of Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp

The extensive Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp production cost report consists of the following industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production From Lumber Woods: In this process, lumber wood is initially processed to remove bark from the wood. Then, wood is ground to separate the oversized chips from undersized ones and deposited into a storage silo. Further, these chips are transferred into a digestor for cooking where sodium sulfide reacts with sodium hydroxide to break lignin, which holds the wood fibres, followed by disintegrating the fibres-the pulp. After that, the pulp is extracted from the black fluid, yielding unbleached pulp. The final step in the production of Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp involves adding chemicals to the unbleached pulp based on its intended usage in the bleaching facility.

Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp is globally the second largest market pulp in tonnage. The pulp is derived using softwood trees that are primarily found in Canada, the Nordic countries, and Russia (particularly Siberia). The most typical species found are spruce and pine. Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft Pulp (NBSK) has long, slender fibres that bring strength to the final product, along with runnability and superior dewatering properties in the manufacturing process.
