The second life of the waste paper


The use of 1 tone of the waste (recycled ) paper by paper and paperboard production saves up to 4 cubic meters of wood. But not all paper and paperboard can be recycled. A large number of paper and cardboard products for technical purposes are produced with the addition of various coatings and plastics, can be glued, painted, etc.

Waste Paper (Makulatur, from maculo – to stain) is a product of paper and paperboard, paper waste, which has served its sentences. Waste paper is widely used for the production of cardboard and paper. One ton of raw material will be released about 750 kg of paper. What can be done of recycled paper? It turns out a lot:

  • Molded egg trays; 
  • Closing boxes for eggs; 
  • Pallets for various industries; 
  • Packing boxes.

As waste paper in the industry the old corrugated boxes are being widely used, which had been packaging for packing of goods of domestic and industrial purposes. In second place as the source of recycling paper are old newspapers. In the manufacture of laminated paperboard is used more than 70% of collected waste paper.

Manufacturing enterprises are increasingly facing the problem of waste disposal, including paper. Using recycled paper is the correct solution to two problems at once: secondary processing of raw materials and production of original packaging.

A huge plus of packaging made of recycled raw materials is that it is rigid. When transporting products such packaging will be sufficiently strong to suppress the vibration and shock, it can confidently consolidate the goods inside.

In any country the number of waste paper is directly dependent on paper and paperboard consumption per capita.
Waste paper is not only neat piles of folded paper and cardboard, magazines and newspapers. Everyone who prefers to learn the first news from the Internet or on television, has a great opportunity for putting in a lot of used paper. Paper towels, cardboard sleeve from the foil, wrapping paper, boxes of biscuits, advertising production, daily come to us in hand, one should not throw it in the trash, but separately collect and contribute to the great deal of preservation of our wood treasure.
