Fuyang City to Shut 76 "Obsolete" Paper Machines
March 3, 2006 - Fuyang City, in China's Zhejiang Province, has plans to shut down 76 small paper machines that the city considers either obsolete or fail to meet environmental standards.
According to a report on China Paper Online, Fuyang City will spend RMB20 million to have the machines shut down by June of this year.
The machine closures will result in a paper capacity reduction of about 270,000 metric tons per year and will substantially reduce wastewater discharge, the report said.
