Top Abu Dhabi mill backs paper expo
Dubai, September 15, 2011
Abu Dhabi National Paper Mill (ADNPM), the UAE’s largest and most advanced manufacturer of jumbo tissue paper rolls, is participating at the upcoming biggest paper show in the Mena region.
The fourth edition of Paper Arabia will be held from September 18 to 20 at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
“ADNPM, spread over an area of 60,000 sq m, uses state-of-the-art Crescent Former tissue machines to produce world-class paper from the highest grade virgin pulp,” said Helmet Berger, general manager, ADNPM, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi National Industrial Projects Company.
“The mill houses a pulp store, machine house, stock preparation facilities, tissue machines, de-inking plant, warehouse and offices.”
“Total capacity of the de-inking plant is 30,000 tons. Recycled paper usage within the paper mill production process helps save the environment by reducing pure pulp usage,” said Berger.
“ADNPM has also installed a water treatment plant whereby 40 to 60 per cent of the waste water is treated and re-used, rather than being dumped into sewerage. This helps the paper mill in not only reducing energy consumption but also in being environmentally friendly,” he added.
Satish Khanna, general manager, Al Fajer Information and Services, organisers of the show said: “We are pleased to have ADNPM to participate in Paper Arabia show. In a short span of time, ADNPM has carved a niche for itself as a leading regional manufacturer, with a reputation for being a state-of-the-art independent producer of tissue paper.”
“The paper, tissue and converting industries will be displaying latest technologies at the three day show.”
“This is the only such show in the Middle East that is really making rapid strides year after year. It offers opportunities to the manufacturers and suppliers of finished products, equipment, machinery, paper chemicals, services, supplies of paper, tissue and converting sector to access the Mena markets,” Khanna added. – TradeArabia News Service
