Coimbatore, Aug. 30
CLEANER production technology will be the focus of the maiden international trade fair and technical conference on pulp and paper industry to open here on September 1.
The four-day trade fair/conference `Indian Paper 2005' will be the platform for the pulp and paper industry to update on production processes adopted by it covering aspects such as energy saving, reduction in emission and effluent loads and improving quality of pulp.
The fair will also showcase the paper machinery and the machinery used for conversion products such as tissues, corrugated cartons/paper boards.
Eminent speakers connected with the paper industry are scheduled to make presentation on critical areas of production such as raw material, eco-friendly production process and usage of bio-technology, besides the cogeneration and energy management at the technical conference to be held for two days, i.e, on September 2 and 3, according to Mr P.G. Mukundan, Managing Director, Sai Expocon India Pvt Ltd, the event management group which is organising the fair in association with the paper industry.
Mr Mukundan said the `India Paper 2005' show should command considerable interest for the domestic pulp and paper industry which has an un-envious task of increasing the country's paper production from the present six million tonnes to eight million tonnes by 2010, despite the bottlenecks it faced in the form of tight raw material scenario and the compulsions to adopt the cleaner production norms obligated under the Kyoto Protocol.
Over 60 companies engaged in paper machinery/allied machinery/spares and chemicals would figure in the fair. The trade fair to be held at the Codissia Trade Fair complex, will be inaugurated by the Tamil Nadu Minister for backward classes, Mr Se. Ma. Velusamy.
