Belarus Company Building New Tissue and Napkin Plant

The Belarusian company OAO Spartak will startup a new plant for the production of toilet paper and paper napkins in the first quarter of 2011. A.Celli Paper, Italy, will install a complete tissue machine on a turn key basis, having a production capacity of 50 metric tpd and jumbo reels of 2,800 mm. The tissue machine will use a complete range of raw materials from virgin pulp to 100% recycled paper or, alternatively, a percentage blend of both. Equipment delivery began last month and will be completed by October.

The new mill includes an integrated deinking plant. It will serve the local market of Belarus and the Mogilev region, which currently is completely dependent on imports.
