Malu Paper Mills to Increase Newprint Capacity in India

Sept. 20, 2006 - Malu Paper Mills Ltd. (MPML), which is based in Nagpur, Maharashtra, India, plans to increase its papermaking capacity by the middle of 2007 with the addition of a paper machine.

The company expects to increase its newsprint capacity to 90,000 tons per year in 2007-08, up some 70,000 tpy from its current capacity of 19,800 tpy.

According to the Hindu Business Line, a second-hand paper machine is being delivered to the mill from another country in Europe. The machine has a capacity of 150 tpd of premium quality newsprint.

MPML also plans to install a new deinking plant to process its primary raw material, which is waste paper.

The company currently operates two mills in Nagpur—the newsprint mill and another that produces craft paper.
