Hindustan Newsprint Limited (HNL), a Government of India Enterprise, uses advanced technology and eco friendly raw materials and processes to produce superior quality newsprint. Newsprint is used in the printing of newspapers, flyers, and other printed material intended for mass distribution. The consumers of newsprint include printers or publishers of newspapers, periodicals, textbooks or books of general interest.

Diversity in range
HNL produces a wide range of newsprint grades. Initially, the company produced 52 GSM (Grams per Square Meter) newsprint. Later, to meet changing market demands, HNL commenced production of 48.8 GSM newsprint. With increasing demand for lower GSM newsprint, HNL started production of 45 GSM and 42 GSM newsprint also. HNL maintains consistent quality in all grades of newsprint that it manufactures. HNL also produce Writing and Printing Papers of cream wove/eco-maplitho variety reels and sheets( 52 GSM to 75 GSM).

At the time of commissioning in 1982, HNL produced newsprint with just 48-50 % ISO brightness. Later, it switched over to a superior and eco-friendly technology in bleaching using Hydrogen Peroxide (H202). This change enhanced the brightness to 53-55% ISO. The company’s competitors soon followed suit. Always a step ahead, HNL further advanced the brightness levels and is at present producing newsprint with 55 - 58 % ISO.

Today, brightness level is at par with that of imported newsprint. Further improvements are possible by putting a premium value on the product.
