Pulp and paper manufacture

Pulp and paper industries are capital intensive and benefit from economies of scale. The vast majority of paper products are made from cellulose fibres, the aggregate of fibres being known as pulps. Chemical pulp mills typically operate at tonnages of 1000 tonnes per day, while a modern newsprint machine will produce 600 tonnes per day.
