(News from RISI) – Italy’s Cartiera Ferrania will install a new tissue machine as well as a cogeneration plant, the Italian newspaper La Stampa reports.

The mill currently produces some 30,000tpy of tissue paper and its production capacity will double after the investment.

According to the newspaper, the mill recently obtained an Environmental Assessment (VIA) from the Liguria region and now needs an integrated environmental authorization (AIA) from the Savona province as well as other authorizations from the municipality of Cairo Montenotte.

The Liguria region linked the permit to periodic monitoring of the facility, the use of the best available technology and the use of rail freight transport.

The €10m investment will also include the installation of a new 4.3MW cogeneration plant.
