The Houli Mill appears to have six paper machines, three sets of cogenerating equipment, and two sets of circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers. The mill reportedly has an annual production capacity of 1.55 million tons. The first cogeneration set (G1) appears to have a capacity of about 9.6 MW, the second (G2) of about 48 MW, and the third and newest (G3) of 35 MW. When the cogeneration equipment has excess power output, the power is sold to Taipower for subsidies.[2][3]

In March 2021, the company met to discuss how to become a new low-carbon green energy paper industry in Asia.[4]
