Valaichchenai Paper Mill to roll again
The Valaichchenai Paper Mills Corporation which was revitalised last
year after long years of disuse will resume full production by next
week, National Paper Corporation General Manager Victor Abeysinghe said.
New production will commence by using a bio-mass boiler in place of the
furnace oil used earlier at exorbitant cost, the General Manager said.
He further added that the new technology would involve the use of
paddy husk which will result in the Corporation saving nearly six
million rupees every month. Arrangements have been made to introduce the
same bio-mass technology at the Embilipitiya Paper Mills by the end of
the year, National Paper Mill sources revealed.
