Domtar has popped by 5.2% to $82.45 on volume of 394,568, versus its average trading volume of 299,871. Domtar said it was celebrating the start-up of its newly installed 50 megawatt bio-fueled steam turbine generator at its Marlboro mill in South Carolina.

Orient Paper is up 2.9% to $5.62. Orient Paper says it's finished the installation of two new energy efficient boilers to replace two old steam boilers that, as previously announced, were removed in July of last year. The removals were required by of the Baoding City Environmental Protection Agency in connection with the government's approval of the Orient Paper's pending, new 360,000-tons-a-year medium paper production line.

Fibria Celulose (FBR) has risen 3% to $16.51 even amid news that the stock was downgraded to equal-weight from overweight by Morgan Stanley, along with the broader equities, as they advanced with General Electric's (GE) consensus-topping quarterly earnings report.
