Botnia's Fray Bentos Pulp Mill at Full Capacity

May 15, 2008 - Botnia said that its new $1.2 billion pulp mill in Fray Bentos, Uruguay is up to its full operating capacity and the mill's performance has been excellent in both production and environmental expectations.

I have participated at several mill start-ups and can say that this was really the best one, said Sami Saarela, mill manager. \

To date, the Fray Bentos mill has produced 377,000 tons of eucalyptus pulp, of which 70% is exported to Europe and 30% to Asia, Botnia said

The mill started up in mid-November 2007.
