A 15,000-ton spunbond line will come onstream in late 2013.

Mitsui Chemicals will form a new spunbond nonwovens operation in China to supply the disposable diaper market. According to the Tokyo, Japan company, the facility will begin operation in September 2013 with a 15,000 ton line in Tianjin, China.
 
Mitsui already operates a 30,000-ton spunbond operation in Thailand as well as a 34,000-ton plant in Japan. In Japan, the company announced earlier this year it was adding a 15,000 ton year line to start in April 2012. When the two most recently announced investments are complete, the group’s total spunbond capacity will be 79,000 tons per year.
