COVERAGE NOTE: Changes to NA export pulp and deinked pulp assessments – Implementation
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 16, 2020 (Fastmarkets RISI) – Following consultation with stakeholders and as previously announced, Fastmarkets RISI has discontinued the following price assessments with effect from October 2020.
- Deinked pulp (US air-dried and wet-lap), US East (Price ID 172)
- Southern Bleached Softwood Kraft, from US, CIF Japan (Price ID 489)
- Northern and Southern Mixed Bleached Hardwood Kraft, from Canadian/US, CIF Japan (Price ID 490)
These assessments will no longer appear in PPI Pulp & Paper Week, the Fastmarkets RISI portal and mobile app, as well as all data feeds.
Fastmarkets RISI will retain assessments of Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft CIF Japan and CIF Korea. There is still sufficient liquidity in these markets to sustain assessments and sufficient demand for them from the market.
