It will have a width of 5.6m and a design speed of 2,000m/min, producing 60,000 tonnes of high quality toilet and facial tissue per year using virgin wood pulp and bleached bamboo fiber as raw material.

Start-up is planned for late 2015 and it will be installed at the company’s Chongqing mill in Zhutuo Town, Yongchuan City.

Valmet’s scope of delivery includes a complete tissue production line featuring stock preparation systems and an Advantage DCT 200HS tissue machine.
The machine will be equipped with an OptiFlo headbox and a cast alloy Yankee cylinder.
Lee & Man Paper Manufacturing was established in 1994 and now employs 6,500 staff across five production sites in China.

The group has a capacity of up to 6.05 million tonnes of container board, duplex board and tissue paper as well as 180,000 tonnes of pulp.
