High competitive market of tissue paper complied industries to manufacture cost effective and sustainable products. Towel grade tissue paper is generally meant for its high dry and wet strength to serve the purpose in household as well as away from home. The choice of fibers (especially long soft wood fibers) and their refining which require high energy is directly linked to cost and consumption of energy. Tissue paper is categorized by keeping in a view of end use and its product accordingly we define its characteristic and modified the manufacturing process accordingly. There is always an opportunity to cater the market with the new requirement at the same time there is a challenges to meet out its characteristics with lower cost of production. A Systematic study with scientific approach was conducted aimed at quality improvement by optimizing the fiber furnish and wet end chemistry which helped to maintain the machine parameter while manufacturing the high strength towel grade paper. After optimizing the imported softwood pulp a combination of 20% softwood pulp along with 80% mill pulp was selected for the research work. Using this selected combination of raw material furnish along with application of commercial cellulose refining enzyme, tensile strength increased by 15.0% and wet strength also increased by12.8%as compared to competitors samples.
