Arizona Forest Restoration Products Inc (AZFRP), which plans to build an OSB plant in Winslow, Arizona, has further delayed its proposed start-up date and revised its plans.
The proposed plant will now have an annual
capacity of 470 million ft2, down from the 680 million ft2 originally proposed.
In a statement on the company’s website, AZFRP’s president and ceo Pascal Berlioux said the revised production capacity would consume 25.8 million ft3, or 827,000 tons, of green logs annually in the production of high-value speciality OSB or OSL.
The delayed start-up centres on the granting of harvesting licenses which are needed to secure investment in the project.
However, Mr Berlioux stated: “We fully intend to move forward during the first quarter of 2009”.
