Norwegian term or phrase: Tømmerrenseri
Is “pulp mill” an adequate translation of “tømmerrenseri”? Alternative ideas? Help much appreciated!

Et trailerlass tømmer hentes inn til rens i tømmerrenseriet, der det omgjøres til termomekanisk masse og varmes opp for å skille ut de stoffene fra treet som ikke skal være med i papirproduksjonen (eks: kvae).


I tillegg til tre papirmaskiner består anlegget av tømmermottak, tømmerlager, flislager, tømmerrenseri, massefabrikk for produksjon av termomekanisk masse (TMP), fyrkjeler, ferdigvarelager, utskip-nings¬kai for papir, råstoffkai, mekanisk verksted, biologisk renseanlegg og admi-nis¬trasjons¬bygg.

The step mentioned relates to converting lumber to paper, not to debarking. See link for description of process.
