HELSINKI, June 3 A Finnish pulp and paper maker
Stora Enso executive said the pulp mill it has built
in Uruguay with Arauco is ready to start and should receive its
final permit this week.
The long-delayed mill is a 50-50 joint venture of Stora Enso
and Arauco, an arm of Chilean industrial conglomerate Empresas
"It should start literally any minute. We expect most likely
this week to have the permit from the environment authority,"
Juan Bueno, the head of Stora's pulp division, said in a speech
at an industry conference on Tuesday.
