It also sources its raw material and fuel locally and recovers 95% of the cooking chemicals used in manufacturing. The company’s core USP lies in utilization of local agri-residues in creating raw materials. Its strength is rooted in R&D and innovation, it is creating path breaking products and processes for fibre, pulp, paper, biopolymers, moulded products, waste lines, and biomimicry.
