Recycled fibre today constitutes most sought after raw material for pulp and papermaking due to deficiency of forest based resources and environmental and quality concerns associated with use of agro residues, particularly, for mills not having chemical recovery.
Around 200 delegates from India and abroad will discuss the issue.
The IPPTA is a family of professionals from the Pulp and Paper, Newsprint and Allied Industries with its head office in Saharanpur (UP). It was established in 1964.
The objective of the IPPTA is to create awareness about rapid changes in technology all over the world for improving productivity and quality.
