(News from RISI) China’s Hebei Yihoucheng Commodity looks set to start up a new 25,000tpy tissue PM next quarter at a greenfield mill in Baoding city, in the northern province of Hebei.
The PM was previously scheduled to come online by the end of 2013. A source close to the project said that construction work was delayed due to the coldness of the winter.
The unit, supplied by Andritz, will have a width of 2.85m and a design speed of 1,650m/min, and be equipped with a steel yankee drying cylinder with a diameter of 3.65m.
It will be Hebei Yihoucheng’s first tissue PM. The company has long been a regionally significant producer of nonwoven products such as diapers and napkins.
