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.
