Export Woodchips (continued)

A licence condition for most of the export wood chip projects requires that the feasibility of converting to a pulp export project be properly studied from time to time. Because of the sustained yields expected from some of these resources such projects could be of world scale, say equivalent to a pulp output of 2-300 000 tonne/yr. However, largely because of high local costs, world over-capacity and depressed pulp prices, no study has yet produced a viable pulp mill proposal.
