(News from RISI) – Chongqing Well Mind Paper has started up a 30,000tpy tissue PM at its mill in Chongqing municipality.

Supplied by A Celli, the machine has a trim width of 2.85m and a design speed of 2,000m/min.

The first sheet of paper rolled off the line on 21 May and the unit is gradually ramping up production.

The firm signed up Acelli in 2010, but the project hit a delay, and civil engineering work did not kick off until 2012.

In addition to the new PM, the site currently has a capacity of around 24,000tpy of tissue.
