(News from RISI) – Japan’s Daio Paper has announced a plan to restart operations at its inactive Kawanoe mill in the Ehime prefecture.

The site, which is near Daio’s huge Mishima mill, will benefit from the latter’s pulp production and energy facilities as it produces a projected 4,500 tonnes per month of household paper products.

Output will include tissues, toilet paper, and kitchen paper.

The project is projected to cost about ¥21bn ($193m).

It is subject to a vote by Daio’s board of directors in September.

If approved, it should start up between April 2018 and March 2019.
