Chemimechanical pulping Chemimechanical pulping (CMP) involves a gentle chemical treatment stage combined with mechanical defibration using a disk refining or a rotating grindstone to fiberise the wood feedstock and develop the necessary pulp properties for paper or board products.1-3 The processes with a yield in the range of 80 % to 95 % were originally,
