On top of that, China now has a new 3000 metric ton/day BHKP (bleached hardwood kraft pulp) at Hainan Jinhai (one of the largest single fiberlines in the world), as APP looks to rebalance the region's fiber deficit.
Plus, as one analyst pointed out, BHKP demand has risen by 900,000 metric tons/yr on average over the past five years.
All 8 fiberlines (NBSK, two BHKP
, office waste, DIP, ONP, OCC, mixed waste), including the DIP plants, the paper machine, automation, and the winder were delivered by Metso Paper.
Like the northern bleached softwood kraft pulp, or NBSKP contract, the BHKP contract size is 20 (metric) tonnes with a tick size of $10 per contract ($0.

For instance, Europe still dominates as a buyer of BSKP or sulphite pulps, but Asia is already clearly number one in UKP and BHKP

Another end-use sector where BHKP for market pulp is higher than in integrated use is tissue.
Cartonboard use is another area where integrated use of BHKP is higher than the market use.
