Pulp and Paper

Industries in the Pulp & paper sector can be categorized on the basis of their Raw material into three subsectors i.e. Wood based ,Agro based, and Recycled fiber based (RCF). The total reported energy consumption of designated consumers in this sector is about 2.08 million ton of oil equivalent.

Specific energy consumption varies from 0.202 toe/t to 0.878 toe/t for the 31 designated consumers. By the end of the first PAT cycle, the energy savings of 0.119 million ton of oil equivalent /year is expected to be achieved, which is around 2% of total national energy saving targets assessed under PAT.

Process optimization, waste heat recovery, and cogeneration systems offer significant scope for improving the performance of Indian paper mills.

This section contains best practices in energy efficiency adopted by industries in the pulp and paper industries sector, during 2012-2015.

The case studies presented in KEP sectoral workshops and National Energy Conservation Awards, NECA 2012,2013, are listed here.
