SCA announced that it will increase the price for its BSK (bleached softwood kraft) and NBSK (northern bleached softwood kraft) pulp by $40 per tonne, pushing the price to $880 per tonne.
The price adjustment becomes effective October 1.
“We see a growing demand for pulp and our stocks are decreasing,” said Henning Ellström, VP Sales and Marketing, Pulp. “Furthermore, the pulp supply this autumn is limited, not the least by maintenance stops among pulp producers. Many planned maintenance stops this spring were postponed until this autumn.”
