Authors: Tirath Gupta, Vinod Ahuja
Issue/Year: Jul-1989
Section: Research

Based on a study of seven bagasse based paper and newsprint units, Tirath Gupta and Vinod Ahuja show that enhancing residual bagasse through drying it before firing the boilers and using that material for pulping would be more desirable compared to generating surplus bagasse by installing coal fired boilers at sugar mills. The most desirable and sustainable solution in the long-run, according to them, would be to integrate the production processes of paper and cellulosic materials.
