Emami Paper Mills contributing differently

-recycling waste into fresh newsprint as well as writing/printing paper

Newspaper in India and its need exactly match with the need of food by the people at large barring with those who still struggle for both ends meals. And the publishers of newspapers understanding the growth happening in this field are leaving no loose threads in trying to fulfill this need. Further, it will also be interested to note that what accounts for the major component in producing a newspaper is none other than NEWSPRINT. In a way the newsprint acts as a lifeline in producing a newspaper whether it is a daily, weekly or fortnightly. This important component - newsprint - is manufactured indigenously but still lot comes from overseas. The domestic manufacturers are few in numbers but the leading tag goes to Emami Paper Mills which commands an impressive share of 15 percent of the total newsprint production in India. SK Khurana and SM Dutt, editors of All About Newspapers who recently visited Emamis plant located at Balasore (Orissa) delineates the scenario and their strengths.

IPEX South Asia 2011 September 16-19, 2011 Mumbai, India


IFRA Expo 2011 October 10-12, 2011 Vienna, Austria


Panoramic view of Emami's manufacturing plant at Balasore Manufacturing newsprint is a challenge in India where there is a major difference in demand and supply and domestic manufacturing firms have to depend completely on overseas firms for inputs required for production, paying heavy duties. But Emami Paper Mills Limited (EPML) is competent enough to face such challenge and compete in the newsprint market maintaining constant growth since last ten years when they started producing newsprint. Presently, operating with three lines of paper making machines, they have been producing the best quality newsprint in India.

Emami Paper Mills also fullfills corporate social responsibility through various activities such as tree plantation and adoption of villages. Seen is insurance awareness camp at Fulkiary, a village addopted by the company.

However, visit to a paper manufacturing plant is itself an educational activity but to understand the process as how old newspapers are converted into fresh rolls of newsprint is yet another important experience which we could take after reaching the paper manufacturing plant of Emami Paper Mills. Located at Balasore - a city with over 1.25 lac population, located in the state of Orissa, about 194 kilometres north of the state capital Bhubaneswar, and in eastern India, on National Highway-60, a four lane express way which connects Balasore to Kolkata EPMLs plant is appreciable initiative by the Emami group of companies to take care of environment and ecological issues. Awarded with ISO-9001, ISO-14001, 18001 and TPM excellence and consistency certification, this plant is an eco-friendly 100 percent waste paper-based manufacturing facility, with a capacity of 1,14,000 TPA of newsprint and 16,000 TPA of writing and printing grade of paper. The plant is equipped with 20 MW co-

generation units to meet the 100 percent power and steam requirement for the process. MBS Nair, director (operation) of the company and who is incidentally also current president of IPPTA stated, Newsprint demand in India is increasing by seven percent per year. But to improve domestic production level to meet the above mentioned demand, raw material sourcing has been a major issue. And it is also not possible to collect 100 percent of old newspapers from our country due to their conventional usage for various purposes such as wrapping of food, fruits, snacks, etc instead of coming to newsprint manufacturers for recycling. We generally prefer English newspapers over vernacular because of better paper quality used.

& Medium Newspapers Federation, New Established in 1983, Emami Paper Mills was primarily as an Delhi. agro based unit for manufacturing writing and printing paper, with an installed capacity of about 15 tonnes per day. But the company has expanded their capacity by adding two more newsprint machines in phased manner so as to meet the sustainable stability in the market. S Acharya, senior general manager (production), Emami Paper Mills informed, We produce writing and printing paper within the range of 52-110 gsm. While newsprint is of 45 gsm and with 1.5 bulk, producing final width of 3.5 metre. Around 75-80 percent newspaper waste is arranged from India and 20-25 percent paper waste from overseas. Their Machine-I is for writing and printing paper (Cream Wove, Map litho, Ledger, etc) having capacity of 16,000 TPA, with speed of 320 MPM. Another two machines are for newsprint. Installed in the year 1996, Machine-II (deckle width: 2,850 mm), with capacity 28,500 TPA, provides speed up to 490 MPM. While commissioned in the year 2007, Machine-III (deckle width: 3,600 mm) has capacity of 85,000 TPA with speed up to 1,120 MPM.

The paper machine is having most advanced forming zone of BelBaie IV gap former from Beloit, USA. Emami is the only mill in India which has BelBaie IV wire section.

Government support needed to enhance newsprint production in our country

says PS Patwari, executive director, Emami Paper Mills, in an informal interaction with SK Khurana during his recent visit to New Delhi. Talking about how Government can help newsprint manufacturers to perform better to meet the demand, PS Patwari said, Government policy is not that healthy in our country. Presently, in India, total paper production is around 10 million tonnes, out of which newsprint production is one million tonnes. While the domestic requirement of newsprint is 2.2 million tonnes (In next 10 years, it may double up to five million tonnes). Resultantly, in future, newsprint supply demand scenario is going to be affected worstly with constantly increasing demand. Domestic manufactures have to pay duty on importing inputs (pulp, waste paper, chemicals machinery, etc) for newsprint production, but there is no duty on importing finished newsprint from overseas manufacturers thus making the situation more critical for them, he added further. Earlier being under the Government control, all major newsprint mills in the country could not perform effectively. Resultantly, some of them have to terminate their newsprint production and others are managing to continue somehow. So, there is an essential need of government support to create optimum climate for domestic manufacturers, so as they can contribute to improve their newsprint supply phenomenon in India, mentioned Patwari with a fresh ray of hope. Registering turnover of Rs 500 crore, we at Emami Paper Mills have been ensuring the lowest newsprint manufacturing cost. It has become possible due to impact of various factors: cost of coal (required for steam and power) is reasonable because of close proximity to coal mines; and having the highest speed machines in India producing 1,125 metre per

Further, we have planned for the single highest operating investment of Rs 1,250 crore in Balasore facility capacity in India (300 TPD), for wood-based writing/printing paper equipped with latest technology production, which will bring additional turnover and automation, producing clean of Rs 700 crore, divulged Patwari, who joined pulp to meet the international the company 28 years ago, and understands the quality standards.
