RYAM’s High-Yield Pulp (HYP) business is one of the world’s leading producers of hardwood high-yield pulp. With nearly double the yield of traditional market pulps, our HYP requires fewer trees to make the same amount of paper and its superior bulk allows paper and board
RYAM technical sales team works closely with customers worldwide to define needs, and we tailor our high-yield hardwood pulp manufacturing process to meet precise customer specifications.
High-yield hardwood pulp
RYAM is the world’s leading producer of high-yield hardwood pulp. Two Canadian operations produce our Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified (FSC®-C017431) Temcell® product using virgin aspen and maple fiber from Canadian forests. Notably, RYAM is the only producer of high-yield maple pulp.
With nearly double the yield of traditional market pulps, our high-yield pulp requires fewer trees to make the same amount of paper. Its superior bulk also allows paper manufacturers to use less fiber. As a result, our product has a cost advantage over other types of pulps.
We tailor our manufacturing process to meet customer specifications, using the most appropriate hardwood fiber for the papermaker’s end product. Applications include:
- Coated and uncoated papers
- Paperboard and linerboard
- Tissue and toweling
In comparison with other types of pulps, high-yield pulp has significantly lower environmental impact in terms of effluent discharge, air emissions and energy consumption. All this makes our product an attractive alternative for papermakers.
