Devkiran Paper to add more 50 TPD Production Capacity 

Banglore | 29,August 2018 | The Pulp and Paper Times

Highly automatic machines, High RCT value and AT par international quality of Kraft paper are receiving attention from foreign buyers. More and More Indian Kraft paper manufacturing mills are increasing their share of export out of total production. “Looking at the kind of attraction we are getting now, the scope for export is very good. Most of the mills have improved their products in terms of 'cleaning efficiency'. We are now able to make international standards products.” told by Mr. R.S. Prashanth, Vice President-Operation (in picture) of Devkiran Paper Mills Pvt. Ltd. to The Pulp and Paper Times.

“In last six months, we have increased our export's share from 5% to 15 %. The demand of good quality paper is pampering us to expand capacity. Currently, we are producing 80 TPD of which is expected to go on 130 TPD by the beginning of 2020. We have planned to invest INR 12 to 15 Cr. in the modification of Plant and Machinery. We are going to add few critical components to improve the production. We will be improving our press section. Our pulp mill section is being supplied by Parason Machinery and press is to be sourced from China.” Mr. Prashanth told.

Dev Kiran Paper Mills private Limited, a leading manufacturer and exporter of high quality recycled unbleached Kraft paper used for packaging purposes. “We have been serving the packaging industry for more than three decades by supplying consistent quality packaging paper in form of reels. The current production line is capable of producing Kraft paper varieties used as a corrugating medium starting from 16 BF to 24 BF. The GSM range is from 120 GSM to 350 GSM. The mill can produce paper up to maximum deckle of 250 cms. The company has a state of the art effluent treatment plant which was recently upgraded for better effluent treatment.” Mr. Prashanth said.           

Indian paper industry is poised to grow and touch 25 million tonnes from 20.37 million tonnes to 2019-20 from 2017-18 at the rate of 10% per annum, according to The Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (ASSOCHAM) .

As the Indian paper industry is largely fragmented with lower capacity with an individual paper mill, it is also prone to using outdated technology. Resultantly, it is estimated that both the raw material as well as the power consumption is higher as compared to a modern paper mill. Adoption of new technology by domestic paper producers would lead to emergence of more competitiveness in critical areas including quantifiable increase in productivity, quality improvement with reduced cost, improvement in energy efficiency and better compliance with environmental protection legislation and safeguards for eco-sustainability of the products.
