Summary

In the late 1920s Tasmanian Paper Pty Ltd was established to run a pilot plant to study and develop the use of Tasmanian timber in the paper industry. The plant operated until 1930 and had proven (confirmed by a trial at APM's Fairfield mill) that newsprint could be produced from mixtures of eucalypt groundwood and sulphite pulp.
