The production of Tissue paper is one of the technically feasible and economically feasible projects, with less investment and great return. Both small-scale production and large-scale production are feasible in the Tissue paper manufacturing business. The Tissue paper industry has become a new subdivision of the Nigerian paper industry. The main reasons behind this are the increase in disposable income, people’s awareness of hygiene and the deep penetration of organized retail.
Potential of the Tissue paper market
As more and more people begin to pay attention to hygiene, the market base will continue to expand. In addition, since it is a recyclable and biodegradable product, it also adds environmental advantages. The year-on-year growth rate of the market is close to 12.5%. The high growth potential of the tissue industry has driven its migration from a small-scale industry to a fully mature and organized industrial sector in Nigeria. Some large companies in the paper industry are moving to Nigeria’s Tissue paper production.
The export potential of this product is also great. The main export markets are North America, South America, Eastern Europe, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Asia and Western Europe.
The financing of Tissue paper manufacturing business
In Tissue paper manufacturing enterprises, two financing methods are generally required. One is the fixed cost, including space and machinery. The other is working capital, including raw materials, wages, and transportation. Before starting a business, it is important to prepare a project report or business plan. According to the report, you can apply for a loan from any bank and financial institution. In this case, the credibility of the owner and at least 25% of the investment as the total cost of the project allocated by the owner is required.
Setting of Tissue paper making machine and unit
Choosing a suitable location for the factory is an important factor in this industry. The site should have readily available skilled labor, transportation, commercial power and water resources. According to your requirements, you will need to arrange the area of the space. It is best to have space in an industrial area. You need to arrange a specific space for production operations, raw material storage, finished product offline and management departments.
Depending on the required output and manufacturing process, you will need to choose the right machinery. Some important machines need to start to include core production equipment, band saw cutting machine, rewinder, embossing unit, punching unit, etc.
Flow chart of Tissue paper manufacturing process
The production process of Tissue paper includes the following steps:
Pulp and dyeing: This is the first step in the process of making soft tissues. First, you need to create pulp, which can be generated from recycled materials. You need to mix the fiber with wood pulp, and then you have to bleach it and wash it. Then you need to put the fiber in a mixing tank where the manufacturer adds ingredients such as dyes. Household Tissue paper is usually dyed white. If you want, you can mix colors with various dyes.
Squeezing: This type of squeezing is to squeeze out water. The main purpose of squeezing paper towels is to dry them so that they can enter the next step.
Creeping: The pulp here is processed by a steam-heated dryer. This dryer helps to pass the pulp process through creping. The roller dries the pulp with extremely high heat because the thin blade scrapes the tissue to the required thickness.
Cutting and reeling: This is the final stage of the whole process. Here, the long paper is cut to the required size. They cut paper towels into different sizes and used them for different purposes.
