Adding a new member to the plant family....
Yash Papers Ltd successfully commissioned new Pith Pellet Plant.
The main benefits of Pith Pelletization are to fully utilize 50% moist bagasse pith. Moisture is reduced from pith to 10% by rotary drum dryer and further compressed in pellet machines to smaller sizes of 10 mm.
Bagasse Pith with 2,100 NCV is increased to 4,200 Kcal/Kg NCV with 90% dryness for a substitute to rice husk fuel, and will be efficiently fired in boilers without any unburnt carryover or back-firing.
The project was built in 70 days with a capacity of 75 TPD pith (30 TPD dry pellets) with a cost of Rs. 136 Lacs, with ROI of 27 months.
Yash papers plan to add similar plants soon to fully pelletize its pith generation.
