We operate modern facilities and source our fibre from sustainably managed forests to produce natural, fibre-based products, including pulp, dimensional lumber and cross-laminated timber, pallets, pellets, bioenergy, biochemicals and biomaterials. Through third-party certifications, we can assure our customers and stakeholders that the fibre we source is from low-risk, sustainably managed forests.
The forests and trees we utilize are prized resources. For us at Mercer, their efficient use is one of our key responsibilities. We strive to fulfill that duty through continuously improving resource efficiency initiatives to minimize our environmental impact and sustain our forest resources.
Our large-scale, modern mills manufacture bio-based products such as NBSK and NBHK pulp, premium dimension lumber and wood products, cross-laminated timber, pallets, pellets, briquettes, and biomass power. We continue working to advance and utilize other biomaterials, like cellulose filaments, lignin, biomethanol, crude tall oil, and turpentine, using new technologies and processes in our strategy to optimize byproduct values, eliminate waste, and provide alternatives for carbon-intensive products.
We are actively researching, developing and investing in innovative products, including derivatives from our kraft pulping process and stand-alone extractive facilities. With the numerous possibilities offered by bio-based products and sustainable wood resources, we are well-positioned to leverage our experience and expertise in the full utilization and continuous expansion of our bioextractives and biomaterials product mix to serve the needs of our global customers and pursue our zero-waste objectives.
Our NBSK and NBHK pulp manufacturing processes utilize round wood and wood chips sourced and harvested from well-managed, sustainable forests under strict standards and third-party certification and verification systems. With the worldwide demand for paper products increasing, Mercer utilizes best available technologies to produce the pulp that our customers rely on to produce tissue, paper, and packaging products in a climate-friendly way.
Mercer manufactures a wide range of high-quality, softwood sawn timber and other planed softwood products. Mercer operations use wood that comes exclusively from sustainably managed forests. Our lumber products are used for home construction, renovations, and packaging and are alternatives for steel, concrete, and plastic. They're recyclable, biodegradable, and carbon-friendly, as they store the CO2 bound in them over their entire life cycle and can be used to produce bioenergy.
Our mass timber and cross-laminated timber (CLT) are produced with advanced technology for high-performance, low-carbon buildings. CLT is used in construction as a climate-friendly alternative to steel, concrete, and plastic. This building material offers a combination of strength, safety, efficiency, and aesthetics, suited to projects supporting environmental responsibility and sustainability.
Mercer is a leading green energy producer from our modern facilities. Our processes produce carbon-neutral thermal and electrical energy as a byproduct of our primary products of lumber and pulp.
Wood extractives and materials like lignin, tall oil, turpentine or biomethanol are bio-based and fit to support a circular carbon economy. Efficiently derived from sustainable forest resources, they play a key role in our striving to substitute fossil-based carbon.
Mercer produces high-quality and certified wood pellets and briquettes. These climate-friendly biofuels are produced from chips and sawdust generated in our sawmills during the processing of logs into pallets, lumber and garden wood.
From the Euro pallet to special designs, there are over 80 different types of pallets that can be produced. Mercer produces 50,000 wooden load carriers per day, according to strict standards and in various designs for all industries.
Mercer subsidiaries Mercer Holz, Mercer Forestry Services, and Peace River Logging see themselves as service providers for forest owners and the woodworking industry. In addition to supplying our operations, Mercer offers its procurement, logging, and logistics services to third-party customers.
Our pulp and lumber products are transported by road, rail, and ocean carriers, whether by third parties or our fleet services. In Germany, Mercer Logistik operates its own fleet of trucks, which also performs services for third-party customers.
