Carta Fabril, Brazil, is in the process of starting up a new Hergen (Brazil) tissue machine at its Anápolis mill, in Goiás state, mid-western Brazil. According to a report by RISI, Carta Fabril VP José Carlos Coutinho Júnior said that the company invested Real 50 million ($21.8 million) in the new machine that is expected to double the mill’s capacity to about 60,000 metric tpy of tissue. The machine was initially scheduled to startup in December 2013.
The new tissue machine will produce double-layer toilet paper and towels, aiming to serve the increasing Brazilian consumer market in regions such as the mid-west and the north-east, according to the RISI report. In the report, Coutinho Júnior said that "while Brazil’s economic growth is limited, its tissue consumption is rising at a 6% rate, following other emerging markets."
