Paper Excellence announces market curtailment of its Catalyst Crofton plant

Paper Excellence announced that its Catalyst Crofton facility will take a market curtailment of about two weeks in November 2021.

The curtailment is in response to on-going global logistics challenges and will be coordinated with a previously planned maintenance shutdown of the facility’s biomass power boiler. Because the boiler shutdown significantly impacts energy costs, both the paper and pulp operations at the mill will be curtailed from November 9 until about November 24 as the maintenance work is completed on the boiler. Crofton expects that it will lose approximately 15,000 air dry tonnes of paper and 19,000 air dry tonnes of NBSK pulp from this outage.

Paper Excellence, headquartered in British Columbia, is a diversified manufacturer of pulp and specialty, printing, writing, and packaging papers.
