Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (NBSK) Pulp is produced from lumber wood through a multi-step process. The wood is initially bark removed in a barking drum and then ground before being segregated in a storage silo. The chips are subsequently cooked in a digestor using sodium sulfide and sodium hydroxide to break down lignin and release the fibers. The resulting pulp is separated from black liquor, bleached based on the intended use, and finally, the production of NBSK pulp is completed.
The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
