Ahmedabad | 30 September 2020 | The Pulp and Paper Times :
The rise in demand for kraft papers in various end-use industries, such as food & beverages, building & construction, cosmetics & personal care automotive, and consumer durables, is a key factor that is projected to drive the growth of the kraft paper market across the globe. In addition, factors such as rapid urbanization across regions and the recyclability feature of kraft papers are projected to contribute to the growth of the kraft paper market.
“We are projecting that demand of kraft paper will remain subdued in the coming months, new projects and spending are constrained due to the uncertainty caused by Corona pandemic, only the essential demand is coming. The sentiment of the market is yet to recover,” says Mr. Sanjay Kumar Jain, Director at Shrijee Paper Mills Pvt. Ltd.
“We took over an old paper mill, named Hariraj Paper mill in auction process last year and renamed it to Shrijee Paper Mills. This mill had a plant and machinery of Voith and we suppose to use the same framing. We have replaced all the defective components with new ones like the entire wire part, accessories, boiler, and ETP. We have also installed a new pulp mill from Parason Machinery,” Mr. Jain informed.
Shrijee Paper Mill will produce 200 TPD paper. “We are expected to start the commercial production after the Diwali festival in November and we are planning to manufacture either absorbent or Kraft Paper that depends on the market conditions,” Mr. Jain said.
The revived paper mill has a deckle size of 4 meters (Finished) and is planning to produce paper under 18 to 20 BF range. GSM range is to be decided on the choice of the segment i.e Absorbent or Kraft.
“In the view of the complete ban on waste paper’s import in China from next year, we are also considering to export readymade pulp to China. The demand for readymade pulp is bound to surge and, that opens up new avenues of earning for paper mills, Depending upon the current market scenario, we need to develop our products according to market behavior,” Mr. Jain says.
The speed of the machine is designed at 300 m/min.
