India’s paper industry has managed to bring down its specific energy consumption by about 20% in the last five years, said Vadiraj Kulkarni, vice-president, Indian Paper Manufacturers Association (IPMA).

As companies, particularly integrated mills, continue to make sizable investments to upgrade and implement clean and green technologies and improve product quality, the industry is moving rapidly up the technology and sustainability curves.

Specific water and energy consumption is being reduced continuously so as to lessen the carbon footprint, said IPMA in a statement.
