TIMBER giant Gunns Ltd has stepped back from its pledge that its proposed pulp mill would be a totally chlorine-free kraft pulp mill.

Instead, managing director John Gay announced yesterday that the $1.3 billion pulp mill would be designed to meet environmental guidelines.

The Resource Planning and Development Commission released pulp-mill guidelines last year.

“We are not going for any specific type of pulp mill. We are building a pulp mill to meet the emissions which are in the guidelines,” Mr Gay said.

He said Gunns would use chlorine or a dioxin-resistant process.
