ROTTNEROS TO INCREASE PULP PRICES FOR CTMP
Like several other producers on the market Rottneros will also raise the price for the NBSK pulp quality to 480 USD/tonne in Europe.
Increased demand for the mentioned qualities, combined with realized declines in production with several producers, has led to a better balanced market creating room for rise in prices.
This is the first increase in list prices since July 2002 for the qualities mentioned.
