Diversified business group Royal Golden Eagle (RGE), founded by Indonesian businessman Sukanto Tanoto (pictured), is building the first integrated viscose fibre factory in Indonesia, which it claims will help meet domestic demand of viscose and drive exports (reports the Jakarta Post).
The factory is expected to be completed in 2018 and will be operated by Sateri Viscose International, part of the RGE Group.
The raw materials will come from RGE’s other business unit, Asia Pacific Resources International, which plants acacia and eucalyptus and processes the trees into pulp.
