An IPPTA spokesperson said, "The focus of the industry is to reduce various sources of polluting factors and save mother nature for the next generation." The industry should practise green manufacturing; must investigate the value of specific technology, adopt new technologies, and improve existing operations.

On the occasion, IPPTA will launch its journal in the presence of stalwarts from the paper industry. Followed by technical sessions whose emphasis shall be improved yield and quality, and utilisation of modern technologies for disposing plastic.

On day two, another technical session will discuss efficient collection, safe storage and processing recovered paper. Recycled paper is an important component of the paper industry. Paper needs to be disposed of and recycled effectively. There is a need to optimise the pulping process to maintain the integrity of paper fibres and minimise its degradation.

IPPTA aims to address the challenges faced by the paper industry and pave the way for sustainable breakthroughs. The discussions will revolve around the paper's second life, on how to enhance its yield and quality responsibly. It will cover the approach to correct plastic waste disposal, and shed light on innovations in paper coating.

IPPTA aims to bolster the annual turnover of the paper industry, which is expected to scale up to Rs 80,000 crore with the total paper production estimated at over 205 million tonnes per annum.
