Pulp and Paper

Forests cover 30% of the world’s land area (just under 4 billion hectares) and are powerful symbols of nature and biodiversity, providing a wide range of goods and services that meet essential and everyday needs.

The driving force behind the Sustainable Forest Products Industry (SFPI) project is to find ways to sustainably manage forests to meet the needs of six billion people now – nine billion by 2050 – for wood and paper products, renewable and greenhouse neutral energy, ecosystem services and healthy livelihoods.

Deforestation and permanent loss of forest cover are significant global and personal concerns. Yet forest governance processes and policies are fragmented and not focused on the underlying causes: conversion to agriculture, population growth, poverty and urbanization.

Stakeholder relations historically have been fragile, and fierce competition from non-wood substitute products and from other land uses such as agriculture often exploits the industry’s perceived weak sustainability performance.

Thus, the sustainable development challenge lies in balancing the expanding demand for forestry goods and services with enhancing ecological, landscape and social values, and building stakeholder confidence in the sustainable forest products industry.

Pulp and Paper

On average, pulp and paper mills consume about 50 cubic meters of water per ton of paper or pulp produced. Since the pulp and paper industry uses so much water and chemicals, and produces so much wastewater, and recycling water, controlling water consumption throughout the production process is crucial to avoid and eliminate problems.

The water issues will pose the greatest environmental challenges in the 21st century. Continuous monitoring can prevent disasters, conserve freshwater, and protect the water resources in the environment. Eco innovation can help meet the specific needs minimizing waste, mitigating risk, conserving water, improving productivity, and protecting the environment. 

Our eco efficient solutions have proven a great success. Also, every liter of water, energy, materials and labor cost saved in production boosts profits and reduces the burden on the environment.

In response to exploding need for eco innovation in Pulp and Paper industry, we invite you to join our BioTrade project.
