Referring to the plans of the plant in the new year in an interview with Tasnim cultural correspondent, Abolfazl Roghani Golpaigani, Mazandaran Wood and Paper Plant's managing director said, "Last year was not a good year for production, and most manufacturers were in the phase of making loss, but hopefully after the story of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) the year 2016 will be an economically good year.
He continued, "Mazandaran Wood and Paper Plant has twpo plans for 2016. Last year, the company launched the OCC or the recycled paper line. In the New Year, we are supposed to accomplish the third line. Based on our negotiations in Austria, the European companies promised us to help us in this respect."
Roghani, explaining further in this regard, said, "Paper industry moves towards recycling; that is, the recycled materials come to the production cycle and then are changed into new products. After launching the OCC plan in Mazandaran Wood and Paper Plant, wrapping ad brown papers are turned into new paper.
He also announced the pavement of the way to launch DIP at the factory for 2016 and noted, "In DIP, we will change white papers of textbooks, newspaper, etc. which have high demand in consumption market, into while pulp in a procedure. This pulp can become white paper again and be used as writing paper and newsprint paper, etc.
Mazandaran Wood and Paper Plant CEO stated, "Thid product will be produced in the country for the first time."Referring to the launch of this unit, he added, "We cannot give a absolute view on its launch for this year. However, we are going to provide the required background to start launching this unit. If everything goes down quickly, its inauguration will occur next year. It requires 16 months to start and launch this line. We have also negotiated with European companies to launch this line and will accomplish a part of the line with the cooperation of local experts."
According to Roghani, the launch of the DIP line makes our country sufficient from importing a significant portion of white paper. Launching this line can both protect the nature and prevent the outflow of foreign currency for the purchase of white paper. We have been able to meet a large portion of the country's need for brown pulp and wood since we launched OCC line. Meanwhile, since we launched this line, we have been managed to give a great contribution to our natural resources.
Stating about their intention to launch the third line of the factory and explaining the details, he reminded, "The third line will be converted to the production of back gray cardboard which is imported to the country in large quantities. Moreover, we are also going to launch the production of Sack Kraft paper consumed in cement bags. These types of paper have not been produced domestically and been completely imported so far. Launching this line can meet one hundred percent of the country's requirements in this respect
