3. Paper products production of 90 million tons.
4. unit product pulp consumption, energy consumption, water consumption, pollutant emissions to maintain international advanced level.
5. Product structure continues to adjust upward, product quality and variety continue to improve.
1. total national paper and paperboard production reached 170 million tons (annual per capita consumption reached 130 kg).
2. The proportion of virgin paper pulp more than 30%.
3. 120 million tons of paper products production.
4. strive to biomass energy production accounted for more than 35% of energy consumption.
5. the proportion of cogeneration to more than 90%.
6. maintain international leading level of pulp consumption, water consumption, energy consumption and pollutant emissions per unit of product.
