Asia Pacific Rayon to ramp up viscose fiber production to meet market demand

JAKARTA, Indonesia, February 26, 2021-

Asia Pacific Rayon (APR) plans to increase its production capacity to 600,000 tonnes to meet the strong growth potential of viscose staple fiber (VSF) and strengthen its market position in Indonesia and export markets across the region. The additional capacity will be achieved through improved optimisation and efficiencies, and by adding 300,000-tonne viscose production facility in Pangkalan Kerinci, where APR is colocated with sister company and fiber supplier APRIL Group.

The expansion will utilise APRIL’s current rayon grade AE pulp capacity from existing pulp production lines, with fiber supply sourced from APRIL’s existing responsibly managed renewable fiber plantations in compliance with internationally recognised forest certification standards and its sustainability policy and in keeping with the recently announced APRIL2030 commitments and targets.
