FPInnovations wants to remind mills that there are only a few weeks left to benefit from its 2018 benchmarking of bleached kraft pulps [previous studies were conducted in 2003, 2007, and 2011] and obtain credible independent assessment of their product in relation to the competitors. Date to compare!
A series of tests used to characterize pulps and evaluate their papermaking potential will be conducted in FPInnovations ISO-accredited laboratory. The reports issued cover an array of bleached kraft pulps criteria and properties. Any specific information pertaining to the mills, such as process conditions or type of end-use products for which the pulp is intended, will remain strictly confidential.
New for 2018, FPInnovations and Fisher International partner to offer unique insights on bleached kraft pulps and on business intelligence.
FPInnovations has collaborated with Fisher International this year to offer its members and partners a unique opportunity to benchmark the quality of their fully bleached kraft pulp as well as provide them with business intelligence reports. In addition to FPInnovations expert pulp quality benchmark study, the experts at Fisher International have benchmarked virtually all worldwide producers of BSK and BHK to provide customers quantiﬁable insight in areas that directly impact their bottom line. Critical to the mill’s success is also its ability to bring to the surface essential data points that could drive its competitiveness and economic health assessed through global benchmarking in cost comparison, total mill viability, and carbon emissions.
Collectively, these competitive comparisons help guide product, infrastructure investment, sales, and marketing decisions, and are powerful tools to drive key business decisions.
Sample submissions are being accepted between now and May 1, 2018. FPInnovations members benefit from an exclusive discount on FPInnovations’ benchmarking of bleached kraft pulps.
