Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft Pulp (NBSK) is commonly used in the production of most paper, paperboard and tissue products. Softwood pulp brings strength to the end product, as well as runnability and excellent dewatering properties to the production process. Metsä produces high-quality softwood pulp under the Botnia brand at its pulp mills in Äänekoski, Kemi, Joutseno, Rauma and Husum.
Botnia Softwood Pulps consist of high-quality Nordic pine (pinus silvestris) and spruce (picea abies) sustainably sourced and felled by Metsä Forest. All of the wood raw materials are 100% traceable to their source. Your Metsä Fibre contact would be more than happy to help you select the bleached softwood kraft pulp (NBSK) that best suits your process and end product.
