Large Indonesian viscose facility to open in August


Asia Pacific Rayon (APR), an affiliate of pulp and paper giant Asia Pacific Resources International (April), is expected to complete construction of what is said to be Indonesia’s largest integrated viscose rayon facility by August.

The new factory will help support the development of the domestic textile industry and help the country reduce its dependency on imported materials.

APR is investing up to IDR15trn (US$1.11bn) in the development of the factory, which is designed to have an annual production capacity of 350,000 tonnes of viscose staple fibre for use in the textile industry.
