Utilization of DMI Kraft in Papers
The Cariboo Pulp and Paper (CPP) pulp mill is located in the Montane Forest region in the Interior of British Columbia where the mighty Lodgepole Pine, White Spruce and Interior Douglas Fir softwoods are the dominant species. The regional forest is ecologically harvested to ensure a perpetual fibre supply, ecosystem function and the maintenance of biodiversity to produce the finest grades of lumber.
Cariboo Pulp and Paper which started operations in 1969 and has been continually optimized and upgraded to be a state-of-the art facility and uses the residual sawmill chips produced in the area to manufacture premium grade Kraft pulp.
Grade – Cariboo Softwood Kraft Pulp
As one of the most excellent softwood fully bleached Kraft pulps produced in Canada, it is ideal for papermakers seeking a strong carrier fibre with well balanced tear and tensile strengths. Cariboo Kraft pulp is characterized by its thin walled flexible fibres that are readily refined and exhibit superior reinforcement properties, sheet formation, surface smoothness, and opacity.
