Comments on Paper Industry in U.P. and Uttaranchal
The paper industry in U.P. and Uttaranchal has made a significant progress during the last decade from the technology perspective. With a major thrust on best practices the industry is being shifted from local made equipments/technology to global suppliers. The past few years have witnessed sharp decline in specific energy consumption, specific water consumption as well as reduced specific fuel and raw material consumption.
The areas needing more efforts include R&D and knowledge sharing. I understand Naini Group has already initiated in developing a good in-house R&D infrastructure, by having its laboratory got NABL accredited. Many others are also there in line to follow them. For knowledge sharing initiatives like Yahoo group “PaperTechnology” and symposium by Paper Mart are going to be very helpful in future.
