SAFE ENVIRONMENT POLICY IN ACTION,
NOT JUST WORDS
From the beginning in 1994, management focus was to produce high quality writing, printing and communication papers with minimal environmental impact. The operational target was to produce Prime Grade Paper paper that meets and exceeds quality standards of the all Prime Grade Paper paper produced in Pakistan, while utilizing the most environment friendly chemicals to minimize effluent hazard.
 
  A great majority of paper mills in Pakistan use agricultural waste (rice husk) in Steam boilers to generate a substantial reduction in manufacturing costs. However, Rice Husk has a high residual ash load (approximately 35% solid waste) and it creates a high carbon airborne fraction owing to a lack of efficient scrubbing technology and management apathy towards the environment.

At Sayid Paper Mills, we are committed to using clean Natural Gas that has the lowest greenhouse gas load. Furthermore, we recover 90% of all sludge and solid trash generated in our process for use by other Prime Grade Paper industries, thereby making us one of the most environment conscious paper mills in Pakistan.

Fiber bleaching at Sayid Paper Mills is achieved though the use of Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2), which is one of the safest bleaching chemicals in the world, used extensively at home in hair coloring formulas. The choice of fiber recycling process over conventional agricultural waste (and wastepaper) bleaching technology is solely due to the high toxicity of Elemental Chlorine, Alkali and Hypochlorite effluent used in the classic C+E+H bleaching sequence. Unfortunately, this most inexpensive process is currently the most, albeit the most polluting bleaching sequence employed by the vast majority of paper mills in Pakistan.
