Peace River Pulp Division
Situated 16 kilometres (km) north of the Town of Peace River and some 489 km northwest of Edmonton, in the province of Alberta, the Peace River Pulp Division (PRPD) mill employs 300 team members and has a capacity of up to 475,000 air-dried metric tonnes (ADMT) of softwood and/or hardwood kraft pulp annually. The pulp mill was the first of Alberta’s new generation of pulp mills and pioneered the production of hardwood pulp in northwestern Alberta. It is designed to minimize the impact on the environment and utilizes previously uneconomical hardwood timber and residual softwood chips purchased from sawmills in the area.
The PRPD mill combines strength in leadership and personnel with the most advanced technology in an atmosphere dedicated to cost-effective production of high-quality market pulp and the achievement of personal job satisfaction. Peace River Pulp Division is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace with a commitment to the environment and sustainability.
Our Values – Our Quality – Our Health & Safety – Our Environment
Typically, one quarter (1/4) of the total production is softwood pulp and three quarter (3/4) is hardwood pulp for sale to the world market. Hardwood pulp, blended with or without softwood pulps makes an excellent printing and writing grade of paper, providing bulk and a good printing surface.
