MUMBAI, Nov. 27, 2014 (The Hindu Business Line) -Canada's Centre for Research and Innovation in Bio-Economy, an independent research organisation, has teamed up with an Ontario-based biochemical producer, Greenfield Specialty Alcohols, to test a new fibre extraction technology at Aditya Birla Group's Terrace Bay, a pulp mill.

Aditya Birla Group had acquired Terrace Bay Pulp, a North American paper grade pulp company, for $110 million in 2012. The Indian firm plans to convert it into a specialty pulp operation to be used to make rayon for textiles. Known as AV Terrace Bay, the acquisition had given the Indian company access to the surrounding woodlands to produce dissolving wood pulp, a critical ingredient for its viscose staple fibre (VSF) business.
