The new owner, Aditya Birla, of an idled pulp mill in northwestern Ontario proposes to restart it in October 2012, and gradually convert the mill to dissolving pulp, according to Pulp&Paper Canada.

In early July, Aditya Birla Group of India signed an agreement in-principle to purchase the assets of Terrace Bay Pulp in Terrace Bay, Ontario, Canada.

The new owner will be investing more than $250 million in a phased manner to convert the mill to produce 280,000 tonnes per year of dissolving grade pulp. Until the conversion, which is likely to happen in fiscal 2016, the mill will produce and sell paper grade pulp.
