Company says one option is to establish a BCTMP facility at the site
Considering the "the likely irreversible and rapid negative impact that COVID-19 has had on the newsprint industry in the region", Norske Skog has started a process to identify alternative production options for its Tasman newsprint mill in New Zealand. The company said that several options are being considered, with one option being to establish a bleached chemical thermo-mechanical pulp facility at the mill site.
Currently the mill is producing standard newsprint, improved newsprint an directory paper on one machine. The mill has an annual output capacity of 150.000 tpy.
