Wanhua invests in a new straw-based particleboard plant in Jingmen, province of Hubei in China. Commissioning is planned for mid-2018.

The company placed an order with equipment producer Dieffenbacher for the core package of a straw particleboard plant, from the forming station and the 8.5-ft wide and 28-m long CPS through to the raw board handling and extraction system.


The project is also expected to provide a positive environmental impact as thousands of tons of straw are burned in the fields each year in China.

Earlier, the company built a straw-based particleboard plant in China.
