The new fiberlines will have a capacity of 1,000 admt/d each and process eucalyptus wood chips to produce semi-chemical pulp, an intermediate grade between kraft pulp and mechanical pulp. Semi-chemical pulp provides excellent fiber properties for corrugated boards, such as fluting paper and other grades produced at the mill.
