(News from RISI) – Yunnan Yunjing Forestry and Pulp Mill has resumed production at its pulp and tissue paper mill in Jinggu county in China’s southwestern province of Yunnan.

The facility was closed right after a strong earthquake hit the area on October 7.

The plant, located just 30 km from the epicentre of the quake, has reported no casualties and no apparent damage to the equipment. But it decided to shut the plant nonetheless to carry out a thorough inspection.

A company source said that the two bleached hardwood kraft pulp lines with a combined capacity of 195,000tpy and a 30,000tpy tissue machine at the plant have resumed normal operations after restarting a week ago.
