The latest developments concerning Burgo's Duino mill suggest that the conversion of PM 2 to the production of coreboard will be realised. If the next steps are put into practise as planned, the rebuild might be completed next summer.
In a meeting with union representatives on 20 February, Cartiera die Ferrara has reinforced its intention to acquire and convert the mothballed PM 2 at Burgo's Duino site in Italy. A trade union spokesperson told EUWID that the machine, which is to be converted from LWC paper to coreboard production, might start up in summer next year. Conditions to concretely start with the implementation of the project would be set around June this year and it could then take about a year for the conversion to be completed, he said.
According to the spokesperson, the next steps to be taken include the establishment of a Newco, a new company that is to operate the converted paper machine in the future.
