Paper recycling

 


Many packaging materials, newsprint, napkins, are made in whole or in part from recycled paper fiber.
Paper is an ancient human invention, but none the less became cheap and readily available only after the Industrial Revolution made possible the widespread manufacture of paper.
Paper waste is most commonly found in almost all spheres of activity and is a source of cellulose fibers, cellulose is a natural substance that forms the foundation of the paper. Paper is made from cellulose and the biodegradation is more easy than plastic.
In different forms, the paper occupies about 41% of all the waste we produce waste


With current technologies, the paper can be recycled up to four times.

 

 

 

Benefits of nature by recycling waste paper are very important, reducing some costs:

* Industrial water to about 60%,
* Air pollution by about 75%,
* Electricity by about 45%,
* Water pollution by almost 45%,
* Reducing the amount of timber exploited.

 Tiday, production of new paper is generally given by the mechanical pulp or cellulose.
 Still should be noted that production of wood pulp make a strong atmosphere and water pollution. Cellulose fibers are extracted from wood with sulfur chemicals, then bleached. Environmental pollution can be reduced thanks to modern technology and increasing use of waste paper. Fibers are extracted from waste paper, and reused. Scrap is dissolved in more water until liquid is reduced to a paste, large impurities such as plastics and metals are extracted, then add chemicals to remove ink printed. The paper machine, the pulp goes through a number of coils, this water is extracted to produce the recycled paper that can be used again.

Statistics:

* In the world are recovered only 25% of the existing paper, although no technical or economic reasons to prevent double this percent
* Recycling just half of the paper used in the world today, can cover about 75% of new paper, simultaneously saving four million hectares of forest;
* Are saved by recycling not only materials, but saves energy and reduces pollution;
* A ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees, 7000 liters of water, 4200 kWh of electricity (enough to heat a house in half a year);
* Recycling cardboard can save up to 25% of the energy used to produce it;
* Daily we produce 650,000 tons of paper in the world, of which 500 tonnes are unusable and are wasted;

How to properly recycle paper?

Step 1 - gather paper that you may not use for packing or writing;

Step 2 - fold the cardboards to occupy as little space as possible;

Step 3 - store them in a special place for collecting paper;

Step 4 - or give them to specialized centers for paper recycling
