Kama Karton, based in Russia’s Perm region, will commission its FBB machine at the end of 2020, Euwid reports.
According to Euwid, the machine will have a total production capacity of 220,000 tpy of coated FBB. The board is destined for both the domestic and the export markets, with an expected export share of up to 50 per cent, according to Kama.
Total investment amounts to RUB22.8bn (€263m). The project is funded by Otkritie Bank, sole proprietor of Kama Pulp and Paper Mill (Kama PPM) and Kama Karton. After commissioning, the plant could cover roughly half of Russia’s FBB imports.
