Pulp & Paper
Efficient, economic and eco-friendly – the future of pulp & paper is here.
The pulp and paper industry is one of the largest industries in the world, with North American, Northern European and East Asian countries dominating the scene. The industry has been growing rapidly in Asia, which produces a majority of the world’s supply, and total global production is expected to continue to grow in the near future. However, the industry faces increasing environmental, political and economic pressures to reduce the effluent volume, toxic by-products and waste that result from its processes. As companies and mills work towards minimum-impact possibilities, a new world of opportunities has appeared for environmentally friendly and natural solutions.
