Sodra to Increase Price for Softwood Pulp
Dec. 15, 2009 - Sodra has announced a US $30 per tonne price increase for softwood pulp grades, bringing the price to $830 per tonne, effective January 1, 2010.
“The pulp market is robust. The stocks remain on a historically low level and the demand keeps being strong,” said Ulf Edman, president of Sodra Cell International.
Sodra is the world's third largest supplier of market pulp. The company operates five pulp mills — three in Sweden and two in Norway — with a total capacity of 2.1 million tons per year, of which just over 100,000 tons is mechanical pulp (CTMP) and the rest bleached sulphate pulp.
Sodra's entire pulp production is sold on the open market.
