Cariboo Pulp Resumes Operations

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Cariboo Pulp and Paper in Quesnel, British Columbia is returning to operations after taking an extended downtime, Pulp & Paper Canada reports.

The four-week downtime started April 20 and was the result of reduced fiber availability resulting from regional sawmill downtime and other impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

The mill is a joint venture between West Fraser and Mercer International.

The curtailment resulted in an approximate reduction of NBSK production of 30,000 metric tons. Both Mercer and West Fraser have shares of 15,000 metric tons.

“For our pulp operations, tissue demand has been strong but the impact of reduced demand for printing and writing applications is starting to materialize,” West Fraser says in a statement, as quoted by Pulp & Paper Canada.
