A combination of three processes is used to turn waste paper2 into new paper – defibrating, binding and forming. Unlike conventional papermaking, PaperLab uses virtually no water from start to finish. This virtually dry process3 makes it possible to produce new paper in a small, localised cycle.
Office-based recycling process
PaperLab enables businesses to shorten the paper recycling loop, reduce transport CO2 emissions and also significantly reduce the need to buy new paper. Usually, plain paper is recycled in an extensive process that involves transporting waste paper from the office to specialised sorting and recycling facilities that use vast amounts of water. PaperLab is especially suited to office use because it uses a virtually dry process3 to recycle paper and doesn’t require plumbing or special facilities.
