The idling of obsolete paper machines in China which no longer met environmental standards in the last years makes space for new investments. According to Euwid, Shangrao City Lulin Paper will build a 700,000 tpy containerboard mill in the country.

The greenfield mill is located in the Chinese province of Jiangxi. According to machine engineering company Valmet, the new mill is to have a capacity of 700,000 tpy of liner and fluting.

Lulin Paper is described as a family-owned company which specialises in the production of corrugated case material as well as coreboard.
