Aditya Birla is moving ahead with plans to convert the Terrace Bay, Ont., NBSK mill to dissolving pulp production, according to an article on the Northern Ontario Business, Oct. 29.

Giovanni Iadeluca, CEO of AV Terrace Bay, told the local news outlet that testing of the wood fibre and pre-engineering work is going on now. “We’ve spent a lot of money, and will continue to do so, to ensure we have an understanding of what technology is going to be best deployed to be able to achieve a dissolving grade quality that is consistent and equal to the best in the world.”

Much of the mill’s dissolving pulp production would be used by other Aditya Birla companies which make rayon.

Iadeluca also told Northern Ontario Business the company is investigating other potential co-products. “We’re looking to make some changes and look at the other value streams that we could have out of the mill. As we’re deploying new equipment and technology into the mill, we’re looking at what is it that we could do differently to provide some bio-type profile to our mill.”

The conversion to dissolving pulp was originally planned to begin in 2014 and be completed by 2016.
