Posted: 13 February 2012 in APP, Indonesia, New pulp mills

Aida Greenbury, managing director of sustainability at APP, July 2010: “There are no out of control expansion plans of our pulp production.”

RISI, February 2012: “We have been able to confirm with reliable sources that Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) is actively developing a large BHK market pulp mill to be located in south Sumatra. Details are not finalized, but the mill is expected to have a nominal capacity of between 1.5 and 2.0 million tonnes per year of BHK, making it the largest single pulp line in the world. APP has been doing extensive planting in the south Sumatra area for some years now, and there is a considerable amount of wood reaching maturity. It is not expected that there will be paper machines installed at the site. We believe that APP has been in discussions with equipment suppliers, but no further details are available. Startup for the mill is being targeted for 2015-16.”
