Raninga Paper Mill Looks at 'Tissue Paper Export Market' with its New 25 TPD Capacity

Changing habits for cleanness and hygiene are making Tissue paper a 'HOT' product. A surge in tissue consumption is inviting the new investors in its manufacturing. “A large volume of tissue paper products are consumed in the workplace for sanitary and cleaning purpose, or as a part of a catering service. Although some of the used products already contain recycled fibres, there is scope for purchasers to push for higher recycled content,” said Mr. Chandresh Soni, CMD of Raninga Paper Mills Pvt. Ltd (right side of the above picture)

“We are excited to have 25 TPD tissue paper capacity ready for production from May 2019. Our test run for state-of-art new tissue mill will be conducted in April and is planning to produce tissue paper of 15 to 50 Grammage. We are aiming to manufacture soft tissue paper and poster paper in our plant situated at Ahmedabad ” Mr. Soni described.

Raninga paper mill will be using recycled fibres for tissue paper production. Mr. Soni further said that “Recycled tissue papers are fit for purpose and cost competitive in almost every type of application. Specifying recycled tissue papers, either for direct purchases or in contracts with Facilities Management (FM) service providers, helps create end-market demand for the paper that your organisation sends for recycling, thereby reducing landfill and decreasing the costs of recycling.”

Tissue paper made from recycled paper is used to suffer from a poor image and negative perceptions. Most concerns focussed on quality, for example, softness, and performance, such as absorbency, when compared to the virgin fibre equivalent. However, with the advent of more modern technologies and improvements in tissue paper manufacture, many of these perceptions can no longer be substantiated.

“We are basically having some Chinese MG & headbox and the machine will be manufactured in India. Our pulping section will be sourced from the best supplier like Parason. We look forward to have good return on our Rs. 20 Crore investment” told by Mr. Soni.

Raninga is slated to mark some portion of production for the export market also. “We are very hopeful to have good orders from overseas market as our quality of tissue paper is pretty good” Mr. Soni said. The machine deckle is 2.8 meter (Finished) and speed is designed at around 500 m/m. The new paper mill will be providing employment to around 50 people. All raw materials will be imported.

Global Tissue Paper Market is expected to post a robust CAGR of over 6% by 2023, in value terms owing to the flourishing tourism and hospitality industry where paper towels and napkins are widely used.  Moreover, the increasing population of working women globally coupled with the growing awareness among consumers related to health & hygiene is expected to drive the Global Tissue Paper Market by 2023. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast year due to rising disposable incomes, improving standards of living and rapid industrialization and globalization in the emerging economies like China, Japan and India.
