Södra Cell reaches 100,000 tons of textile pulp

February 11, 2013

Södra Cell has sold 100,000 tons of textile pulp since production began at its Morrum mill in December 2011. This milestone has been reached sooner than planned.

“We had budgeted to produce 50,000 tons in 2012. That we have now reached 100,000 tons in January of 2013 is a fantastic result," says Dag Benestad, business operations manager for Södra’s textile pulp.

It took 12-months to convert line 1 at Mörrum to textile pulp and the company is now looking at converting an additional line to hardwood-based textile pulp, primarily for customers in Europe and Asia.
