Increased reliance on domestic Eucalyptus fiber by Spanish pulp mills has resulted in a dramatic reduction in wood chip shipments from Uruguay, reports the Wood Resource Quarterly

European pulpmills imported much less Eucalyptus chips from Latin America during 2012, mainly because Spanish pulp mills reduced their reliance on relatively costly wood fiber from Uruguay dramatically, reports the Wood Resource Quarterly. Pulp mills in Spain have also paid less for domestic pulplogs the past year, resulting in substantially lower wood fiber costs in 2012 than the previous year.
