VAXJO, Sweden, Jan. 31, 2013 (Press Release) -Södra Cell has sold 100,000 tonnes of textile pulp since production began at its Mörrum mill in December 2011. This milestone has been reached sooner than planned.

"We had budgeted to produce 50,000 tonnes in 2012. That we have now reached 100,000 tonnes in January of 2013 is a fantastic result," said Dag Benestad, Business Area Manager Dissolving 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 softwood-based textile pulp, primarily for customers in Europe and Asia.
