The GoCell Project is located at Sappi’s Ngodwana mill, near Nelspruit in Mpumalanga. The project will reconfigure one of the mill’s existing production lines to produce chemical cellulose (CC). CC is a feedstock for the viscose staple fibre industry, which manufactures textile and non-woven fibres.
