Rationale
Out of total paper produced in the country, 35% paper is produced in Gujarat. Diploma engineers are responsible for ensuring paper quality, improving the efficiency of production and reducing the environmental impact of the industrial paper making process. Engineers apply their skill while working in laboratory, production, research, sales and marketing. Engineers use chemicals such as sodium hydroxide and sodium sulphide to chemically remove lignin from wood. They ensure that paper is produced uniformly in the same colour. This course is to enable the diploma engineer to some extent in accomplish the task of selecting chemicals, laboratory operations for the Pulp and Paper Technology.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Apply basic concepts of pulp and paper technology to produce paper.
ii. Apply reactions and unit operations steps to manufacture pulp.
iii. Use reactions and unit operations steps appropriately in manufacturing of paper.
iv. Use reactions and unit operations appropriately in manufacturing cellulose and various lignin chemicals.
v. Apply waste disposal techniques.
vi. Perform various chemical tests to monitor quality of raw material, output quality and influent/effluent
