CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA, May 31, 2017 (Local News) -The future of a $2 billion proposed paper mill in Chesterfield may hinge on the success of its Chinese parent company’s efforts to develop new technology in China.

In early May, Tranlin Inc., also known as Vastly, announced that construction of its Chesterfield plant was on hold as the company continues testing its more advanced facility in China. The new technology, the Observer has learned, may have added significance: It could be key to helping the Chesterfield operation negotiate a complex system of trading for pollution credits with other Virginia companies to dump nutrient pollution into the James River.
