Sweden introducing new criteria for pulpwood grading

14.03.2019 − 

Qualitative grading of industrial soft and hardwood assortments into the two new quality categories of “Prima” and “Sekunda” is being introduced in Sweden with effect from 1 August. The main change is that the quality of the individual logs will no longer be determined in future but the average quality of a whole load instead. As such, the new system permits higher tolerance of wood defects of lesser importance from the perspective of the industry but simultaneously specifies stricter limits for defects of greater relevance and weights them more heavily as well. When the new sorting criteria for industrial soft and hardwood is introduced, the version of the existing “Quality requirements for pulpwood” released by the former interest group SDC Ek on 1 August 2016 will become obsolete.
