Tamil Nadu Newsprint and Papers Limited (TNPL) was established by the Government of Tamil Nadu during early eighties to produce
Newsprint and Printing & Writing Paper using bagasse, a sugarcane residue, as primary raw material. The Company commenced
production in the year 1984 with a initial capacity of 90,000 tonnes per annum (tpa). Over the years, the production capacity has been
increased to 2,45,000 tpa and the Company has emerged as the largest bagasse based Paper Mill in the world consuming about one
million tonnes of bagasse every year. The Company completed a Mill Expansion Plan during December 2010 to increase the mill capacity to 4,00,000 tpa.
TNPL exports about 1/5th of its production to more than 50 countries. Manufacturing of quality paper for the past two and half decades from bagasse is an index of the company's technological competence. A strong record in adopting minimum impact best process technology, responsible waste management, reduced pollution load and commitment to the corporate social responsibility make the company one of the most environmentally compliant paper mills in the world.
