Rottneros Agrees to Sell CTMP Equipment of Utansjö Mill to BillerudKorsnäs

Oct. 10, 2014 - Rottneros announced that it has reached an agreement to sell the CTMP (chemi-thermomechanical pulp) equipment of the Utansjö Mill to BillerudKorsnäs.

“We are pleased that our CTMP equipment is a good fit within the large investment BillerudKorsnäs is making in Frövi and Rockhammar,” said Carl-Johan Jonsson, CEO of Rottneros.

Rottneros closed the Utansjö Mill, which is located in Sweden, in mid-2008. The mill produced groundwood pulp and CTMP, most of which was bleached. The mill's total capacity was 159,000 tonnes per year.
