Moreover, the company has procured two blade coaters, two super calendar, Globe Radio rewinder, and trim-free sheeters.

In addition, the brightness of paper produced from pulp will vary from 94 to 95 percent while brightness of waste paper base would be 80 to 85 percent.

To improve its competitive side and combat increasing prices of pulp, Silverton has decided to cut down its cost of production. It has all the latest technology with a cogeneration plant of 16 MW having turbine supplied by Siemens working in 96 bar with best efficiency. The plant would have entire section of Kadant-Lamort with DNT washer.
