Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Nippon Paper Industries Co., Japan, this past week announced that it has completed construction on a project to allow kraft paper production at its Kushiro mill (Kushiro, Hokkaido) in Japan. The project, part of the company's plan for paper business revitalization, provides quality and operations measures to produce the kraft paper grade at Kushiro.

The project was launched last fall to transfer production of kraft paper from Nippon's Fuji mill (Fuji, Shizuoka) to Kushiro. With an investment of around 2.4 billion yen, a range of construction work was undertaken, including refurbishment of the deinked pulp plant, establishment of facilities to respond to heavy-duty packages of kraft paper with a focus on quality, and "reinforcement" of the finishing facilities.

The Kushiro mill now has the capacity to produce some 52,000 metric tpy of kraft paper.
