“The investment in our specialty cellulose facility at Temiscaming is one of the largest in our industry in many years, and it will make Tembec a forest products company like few others.”
- James Lopez, Tembec’s President and CEO
Specialty cellulose binds, strengthens, thickens, texturizes and generally improves a great many products in the pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, foods, coatings, electronics, construction and energy industries. And we believe in total quality – adding value to our products through the depth and rigor of our service, R&D, and environmental commitment.
We process fiber – a renewable resource – into co-products that include lignosulfonates and green electricity as well as specialty cellulose, and transform residuals from our production process into biogas energy used at our biorefineries.
We manufacture specialty cellulose to exacting specifications for customers worldwide, which produce cellulose ethers, cellulose acetate, nitrocellulose, and microcrystalline cellulose for a wide range of applications in consumer and industrial products.
Once complete in late 2014, this $255 million project will increase green electricity production, improve environmental performance, and increase production capacity – while making Temiscaming one of our industry’s lowest-cost manufacturing facilities.
