A few years ago, one common early morning scene in all houses would be – the delivery of the newspaper. With the rise of technology, people reading the newsprint is diminishing day-by-day. The reducing use of newspaper has given way to the increased use of speciality paper. Further, the role of paper is constantly seeing a revision to keep up with the industry and environment needs. Again, in this role revision, speciality paper has gained momentum to become the major driver for the global pulp & paper chemicals market.

To understand the various applications and the future trends, go through our ‘Sector View,’ as we focus on the growing usage of speciality paper.

Also, see what Nichlas Kavander, Senior VP from Kemira has to say about the pulp & paper industry and how he feels that E-commerce will drive the industry in the years to come.

Moreover, discussing the pulp & paper industry, see how Anna Scharman from ABB drives home the point that automation is making paper eco-friendlier.

One of the stakeholders of the chemical market is the process plant equipment industry. As part of this industry, see what Shailendra Roy, Senior Executive VP and Whole-time Director from Larsen & Toubro Limited, has to say, as he discusses ways to strengthen the backbone of the Indian chemical industry.

Moving towards the mining industry, the quality and quantity of mineral deposits is failing to keep up with the rising demand for minerals and ores across the globe. To maintain the balance, mineral processors are looking for solutions that can ensure high mineral recovery from ore. One such solution that is gaining momentum in the mining industry is that of mining flotation chemicals, which has proved to obtain better grade/ recovery curve and meet the surging demand of minerals. To know what’s happening in the mining industry and also the mining chemicals, have a look at our ‘Feature’ story.

For our ‘IT In Chemicals’, we take a look at Accenture’s vision and strategy views for the chemical industry. The IT major speaks about the mega trends and charts out the CEO agendas to drive higher business performance in the chemical industry.
