Rottneros to Increase Price for Chemi-thermomechanical Pulp Grades

Feb. 9, 2012 - Swedish market pulp producer Rottneros said that it will increase its price for all CTMP (chemi-thermomechanical pulp) grades by 30 Euro per tonne for all deliveries as of March 1, 2012.

Rottneros said the increased sales price for CTMP is a result of good demand, particularly in Asia, and this has encouraged Rottneros to increase its prices in Europe as well.

In addition to the good demand for CTMP, there has been a considerable reduction in global stock levels of Eucalyptus Kraft and prices have improved since December 2011, which also supports the decision to increase the price for CTMP grades, the company noted.
