English term or phrase: groundwood pulp
Definition from Media Paper Management:
Wood that has been broken down into pulp by a mechanical grinding process and thus retains a higher proportion of the wood raw material

Example sentence(s):
  • Groundwood pulp has a high yield of approximately 95 % and has a high level of opacity but its strength is relatively low, due to its lignin content. Siemens AG
  • Acidity is one of the most important causes of damage in paper as it weakens and eventually destroys the fibres that make up the paper. As a result, paper made from groundwood pulp breaks down rapidly from within. The first sign of this is that the paper becomes yellow, then brown, and increasingly brittle. Victoria and Albert Museum
  • Processing wood fibre obtained from four separate sources, including thermomechanical pulp (TMP), recycled pulp, groundwood pulp and kraft pulp, the mill produces more than 540,000 ADMt of newsprint each year.

bubur kertas kasar

Definition from mediapaper:
Kayu yang telah dijadikan bubur kertas melalui proses penghancuran secara mekanis dan masih menyisakan kandungan bahan baku kayu yang agak tinggi.

Example sentence(s):
  • Ini kertas generik. Bukan daur ulang, dengan kandungan asam tinggi, bubur kertas kasar, dengan pencerah optis minimal dan pengilat rendah. -  

Padanan "groundwood pulp" menurut Pusat Bahasa ialah "pulp kayu-asah".
Sejauh ini, padanan belum/tidak populer. Oleh karena itu, saya mendukung padanan "bubur kertas kasar", yang menurut saya lebih mengena karena lebih mudah dipahami.
