SCA to increase NBSK price on strong pulp market


SCA increases the price on bleached softwood kraft pulp, NBSK, by $40 per tonne. The new price on bleached softwood kraft pulp, $880 per tonne, is valid from May 1, 2020.

“We see a strong pulp market with a growing demand from primarily tissue customers,” says Henning Ellström VP sales and marketing pulp. “Producer inventories are balanced and production curtailments have been announced by other suppliers. The pulp market is global and we have already seen price increases on other continents.”

The core of SCA’s business is the forest, Europe’s largest private forest holding. The company offers paper for packaging and print, pulp, wood products, renewable energy, services for forest owners and efficient transport solutions.
