There exists a huge demand for Bleached Cotton Linters (BCL) in the defense sector for manufacturing Nitrocellulose used in explosives and propellants. For manufacturing 1000 MT of Bleached Cotton Linters, approximately 1500 MT of Raw Cotton Linters (RCL) is required. Sometimes BCL producers face an acute shortage of their basic raw material i.e. good quality Raw Cotton Linters. This happens when Raw Cotton Linter manufacturers resort to exporting their product because of better returns. Importers from China, Japan and other countries offer better prices to them as compared to local market. Guntur in Andhra Pradesh is the main centre for production of Raw Cotton Linters.
