Papermaking: Efficient and responsible production

The paper sector is an antiquated, obsolete industry

Myth: The paper sector is an antiquated, obsolete industry

Fact:

The paper macro-sector, as a forestry bio-industry is the key sector of the new bio-economy

Bio-industries such as paper making are the industries of the future

Bio-industries such as paper making from natural, renewable raw materials, that manufacture recyclable products with a smaller carbon footprint, are the industries of the future.

Europe  -and  Spain  in  particular-  have  good  weather  conditions  to  grow  wood  and  fallow  areas available due to abandonment of agricultural and husbandry tasks, all along with major development of the paper collection and recycling systems (the urban forest).

As a bio-industry, the paper macro-sector is taking a position as the key sector of the new bio-economy, one that is non-fossil fuel based, depending on efficient use of renewable, recyclable resources, to manufacture natural products with a large added value.

In the near future -one that work is already being carried out on- the factories in the paper chain shall be wood and recycled fibre based bio-refineries that, making highly efficient use of their raw materials, shall manufacture cellulose, paper and cardboard, bioenergy and biofuels, biocomposites and a whole series of new forestry fibre based products.
