The new owners of the pulp mill in Chetwynd, B.C., are investing $50 million to upgrade the mill prior to restarting the operation, Business in Vancouver reported on May 8.
Paper Excellence purchased the mill from Tembec in March 2014. It has been idle since September 2012. Jessica Ko, legal counsel for Paper Excellence, told Business in Vancouver the mill could be restarted as early as July.
The Chetwynd mill had an annual production capacity of 240,000 tonnes of bleached chemi-thermomechanical (BCTMP) hardwood pulp.
