No Old Hat:
Paper Turns into ... Paper
Voith is a pioneer is waste paper preparation. After developing the technology decades ago, the company was the first to make the production of paper from waste paper actually possible. Since then, Voith engineers have continually improved and refined the process.
By now, Voith even has the technology for producing high-grade paper from waste paper. At the moment, the share of recycled fiber as raw material for paper production is at about 50 percent worldwide. If the industry succeeds to increase this share to 70 percent, the rising demand for paper over the forthcoming ten years could be met without using additional virgin fiber. An ambitious plan. But quite realistic with Voith technology.
