Tranlin, Inc. officially broke ground on its first U.S. operation, a $2 billion advanced manufacturing facility, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
Tranlin’s investment is located in Chesterfield, Virginia and will generate more than 2,000 direct jobs in Virginia by 2020.
Tranlin’s Chesterfield County facility will use the company’s innovative, proprietary technology to produce tree-free, natural color, straw fiber paper tissue products made exclusively from agricultural field waste such as wheat straw and corn stalks.
In addition, Tranlin will produce humus-based organic fertilizer products using residues from the papermaking process. Environmental sustainability is deeply embedded in Tranlin’s culture and guides the company’s ongoing pursuit of innovation and technological advancement. Tranlin’s products are a positive contribution to both American consumers and the agricultural sector.
At the top of the circle, agricultural byproducts such as wheat and corn stalks are used as raw material to make paper products that include bath, kitchen, facial and travel tissue, as well as tableware. Then residues from the papermaking process are refined into highly effective, humus-based organic fertilizer.
The circle is complete when this fertilizer is ultimately used to grow crops, often requiring less water, chemical fertilizer and pesticides than traditional fertilizers.
Tranlin, Inc. is the U.S. subsidiary of Shandong Tranlin Paper Co., Ltd., a leading Chinese pulp and paper company that applies innovative proprietary technologies to produce straw fiber, unbleached paper products and superior organic fertilizers.
