Bleached Softwood Pulp

Canfor Pulp operates the Intercontinental and Northwood Pulp Mills in Prince George, BC, Canada. These two mills produce ECF 90 pulp from a mixture of softwood species (white spruce and lodgepole pine) indigenous to the north central interior of British Columbia. The highly versatile fibre properties supplied by the regional sawmills make these pulps highly suitable for use in the manufacturing of a wide variety of specialty products, especially those requiring the highest tensile strength and premium tissue products.
