Solenis, a leading global producer of specialty chemicals, will increase prices for process chemicals and alkaline sizing products for the pulp and paper industry. Process chemicals will increase up to 25 percent effective immediately or as customer contracts allow. Alkaline and AKD sizing products will increase by 15 to 25 percent. These price increases are necessary due to the increase in certain raw material costs combined with a tightening overall global supply chain.
Pulp & Paper Canada is pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 Safest Mill in Canada contest.
Since 1926, Pulp & Paper Canada has recognized mills that have achieved an outstanding safety record.
As always, the mill with the lowest total recordable incident rate (mill frequency) in each category is the winner of that class for the year and receives a plaque and certificate. In the event of ties, the mills are ranked by the most to least total worker hours.
Congratulations to our category winners below, and to all of our participating mills on their excellent safety records in 2018. May 2019 be your safest yet!

We asked some of our participating mills what safety means to their organizations. For Canadian Kraft Paper, safety “is in everything we do.”
Kruger Products CEO Dino Bianco said, “Working toward a common goal all together. Whatever your role, when it comes to safety, you cannot stand on the sidelines.”
And for Cascades, safety means “Always placing people first while striving towards the achievement of zero harm.”
