We are one of the world’s leading producers of wood-based biochemicals. In all our processes at Metsä Fibre, every part of the tree is used as efficiently as possible. We produce Metsä Crude Sulphate Turpentine (CST) as a bioproduct from our pulp production, during the kraft process. This wood-based renewable raw material is an alternative to fossil-based materials and can be used in a variety of industries. End applications include fragrances, perfumes and cosmetics, as well as industrial and household cleaners, and even food and beverages.
Our CST is produced at all of Metsä Fibre’s pulp mills (Joutseno and Rauma) and bioproduct mills (Kemi and Äänekoski) in Finland and at Metsä Board’s mill in Sweden (Husum). Our customers use it as a raw material in their operations around the world. At Metsä Fibre, we ensure that our product meets our customers’ requirements regarding end product characteristics and properties. Our customers rely on the consistent quality and outstanding chemical characteristics of Metsä Crude Sulphate Turpentine.
