The pilot plant will make 1000 tons of material annually and Kuraray plans to introduce a new plant capable of annually producing 3000 tons in 2007 or 2008 and then increase production until it becomes one of its major nonwoven products, according to Nonwovens Industry Far East consultant Kin Ohmura.
