ATLANTA, April 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RISI, the leading information provider for the global forest products industry, today announced the release of its new Mill Asset Database. The database combines new pulp and paper mill data with information previously available from five separate RISI services: the Lockwood-Post Online Directory of Pulp & Paper Mills, the Global Mill Projects Database, the Mill Investment History Database, Pulp & Paper Company Profiles, and elements from its cost benchmarking service, Analytical Cornerstone 4.0.
"Over the last two years, my team and I have been working – in partnership with clients and colleagues in the pulp and paper industry – to develop a tool that provides accurate and relevant information on pulp and paper mills around the world," said Surya P. Raina, Vice President of Mill Intelligence at RISI. "These aggregated data along with intuitive, new tools will make it easy for our clients to search, analyze, customize and download information about pulp and paper mills."
The Mill Asset Database allows users to create custom reports on 3,800 mills and 13,000 mill projects worldwide. Some of the features available include the following:
Search and filter results by grade, region, capacity, equipment, input consumption, investments, status, developer, investment cost and over 100 other filtering options.
Download data to excel, word and other applications.
Map mills within search results using Google mapping technology.
View mill process flow sheets that provide a birds-eye view of mill operations.
Generate consumption reports by mill, for furnish and energy.
RISI employs a global team of news editors, economists, analysts and process engineers who collect and update mill data from the regions in which they are based. This information is fed into the Mill Asset Database as it becomes available. Analysts and engineers also conduct quarterly audits of mills in the database with information collected from site visits and surveys.
