Pulp

Properties of pulp produced by our technology

  • Very high α-cellulose content (up to 98%)
  • Fibres intact, no signs of peeling

  • Easy to bleach and fibrillate

Dissolving pulp is manufactured for applications that require a high chemical purity and a particularly low hemicellulose content. The biggest market at present is the textile industry, where it is used as a substitute for cotton and oil-based raw materials. Dissolving pulp can also be refined into micro-fibrillated cellulose, used in foodstuffs such as sausage casings, or utilised to make thickeners and emulsifiers.
