Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

China's Baoding Dongsheng Hygiene Products has commissioned a new 17,000-metric tpy tissue PM at its sole mill in Baoding city, Hebei province.

Supplied by domestic firm Shandong Liaocheng Hualin Machinery, the unit has a trim width of 2.85 m and a design speed of 1,200 m/min.

It is the first of our ordered by the company. They were initially scheduled to come online in pairs in late 2017 and in the first half of this year. Baoding Dongsheng did not explain the delay.

In late 2012, an affiliate of the company was set up in Panjin city in the northern province of Liaoning, with a plan to build a greenfield mill that would eventually boast a total tissue capacity of 160,000 metric tpy.

Local environmental authorities fined the affiliate RMB 50,000 ($7,228) and ordered an immediate stop to construction in July 2013 over the lack of approved environmental impact assessments. The project in Panjin has been on the shelf since then.
