The association vice-president and president of South Indian Paper Mills Association, Mr. Rabinder, will inaugurate the workshop. A release from the association said that the Indian paper industry was growing at a phenomenal rate and has been exposed to global prices, demands and supply trends. But there were certain bottlenecks, which needed to be addressed, especially technology. The projected demand for paper in 2015 is 15 million tonnes and this will rise to 20 million tonnes in 2020. This called for upgrade of technology.
The workshop will address these issues by bringing together technology suppliers and technical personnel (shop-floor) from Indian paper mills and paper manufacturers. Experts from the industry will present the various automation options and latest technologies in the field of automation.
