Hardwood pulp


Bleached Hardwood Kraft Pulp (BHKP) is commonly used in paperboard and specialty paper, as well as coated and uncoated papers and tissue. In many applications hardwood pulp provides excellent strength and surface properties.

Our hardwood pulp is used to make our Metsä Birch products. Metsä produces high-quality hardwood pulp at its pulp mills in Äänekoski and Husum.

Our hardwood Pulp consists of high-quality Nordic birch (betula verrucosa, betula pendula or betula pubescens) sustainably sourced and felled by Metsä Forest. Hardwood kraft pulp made from Nordic birch is ideal when high tensile strength and good formation is required. All of the wood raw materials Metsä Fibre uses are 100% traceable to their source.
