China’s Yibin Paper has started up three A.Celli-supplied iDEAL tissue machines.

The lines are producing unbleached tissue paper using 100% Bamboo slush pulp.

Four tissue machines are currently installed and after TM2 started-up in September, TM3 and TM4 (with a 16’ Yankee) and TM5 (with 18’ Yankee) have also been started-up.

With the investment, Yibin Paper aims to be China’s largest bamboo pulp tissue paper producer.

The company also owns a bamboo pulp factory and its goal was to produce tissue paper without adding wood pulp from the beginning of the project.

The whole design of the plant, from stock preparation, to approach flow system and to tissue machine, was based on the use of 100% bamboo slush pulp.
