The first batch of rayon grade pulp was produced at the Svetlogorsk cellulose and cardboard factory. At present, the factory is holding tests for launching industrial production of this completely new produce in the country. The rayon pulp enjoys high demand at world markets, and the prices are higher. It is used for the production of the viscose fibers, which make almost 80% of the global output of synthetic fibers. The Svetlogorsk cellulose and cardboard factory was founded as a processing facility for imported paper and cardboard. As of now, the factory has a full raw-wood processing cycle and consists of several plants.
