Birla Jingwei Fibres Company Limited (BJFCL) was established in 2006 as a joint venture company between the Aditya Birla Group and the Fujian Jingwei Group, to leverage the demand of Fujian Jingwei yarn mills. In 2008 BJFCL's 100-percent ownership was taken by the Aditya Birla Group.
The plant is located in Taiping town of Xianyang City, Hubei Province in central part of China. The plant had an initial capacity of 30,000 TPA viscose staple fibre (VSF). Major modifications in effluent treatment were done initially to meet the stringent norms of water discharge as the plant is located upstream of the Hanjiaing river. A diffused aeration system was introduced for the first time in VSF wastewater treatment, which is energy-efficient and easy to maintain.
The VSF capacity was increased to 72,000TPA along with a captive power plant of 15 MW. The new 40,000TPA plant has the latest equipment with the capability to operate on cotton lintel pulp as well as wood pulp, and to produce dope-dyed product.
BJFCL caters mainly to domestic markets located in Fujian, Jinagsu, Zhejiang, Henan Hubei, Hebei and Shandong.
