An investment in a new paper machine is to double the tissue paper production of Century Pulp and Paper. Metsä Fibre sells pulp to the Indian market in cooperation with its Japanese partner, Itochu.
A new tissue paper machine, which will double the production of Century Pulp and Paper (CPP) to 76,000 tonnes a year, has been set up in Uttarakhand, northern India, in April 2021. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the machine came online slightly later than scheduled.
While this volume will make the company the biggest producer in the tissue paper market in India, it is not enough.
