Paper Excellence announced a market curtailment of about two weeks at its factory in Catalyst Crofton, in November 2021. The reduction is due to logistics problems faced globally and will be coordinated with a previously planned maintenance shutdown of the facility’s biomass power boiler.
Pulp and paper operations at the mill will be interrupted from November 9th until approximately November 24th, due to energy costs, until the boiler maintenance is completed. Crofton expects that it will lose approximately 15,000 air dry tonnes of paper and 19,000 air dry tonnes of NBSK pulp from this outage.
The Crofton Mill is located in Crofton, British Columbia, Canada. The mill has the capacity to produce 380,000 tpy of NBSK pulp and 334,000 tpy of printing and packaging papers. Its unique deep-sea port facility provides an economic gateway to major marketing in western North America, Asia and Latin America.
