Managing Industrial Effluents from Pulp & Paper

January 2021 | Resource Conservation & Management (RCM)

The Pulp and Paper Industry is one of India’s oldest and core industry sector. As per CPPRI, 2009 data, there are 706 Pulp & Paper mills in India, out of which about 50% of the Pulp & Paper industries are located in the States of Maharashtra, Gujarat & Uttar Pradesh. Paper manufacturing is a highly capital, energy and water intensive process. It is also a highly polluting process and requires substantial investments in pollution prevention & control equipment. It is observed that about more than 80% of the Pulp & Paper units operate on medium & small scale and majority of them lack adequate water & wastewater management practices. As per the FICCI experience, it is felt that these Pulp & Paper units need to be supported by providing hand holding support and technical guidance for adoption of water efficient technologies and implementation of water and wastewater management best practices to achieve reduction in freshwater & energy consumption, reduction in effluent generation and reducing operational cost.
