Stone paper is more environmentally friendly! Reduce tree felling, reduce carbon emissions, even the White House loves to use it
Our logistics carton market is nearly 200 million tons a year, resulting in considerable recycling and environmental pollution. There is a paper mill in Taiwan that develops stone paper and uses marble waste to make cardboard. Now it is attacking the corrugated box market, which will replace The original wood pulp cartons do not reduce the felling of trees, but also reduce carbon emissions by nearly 7 million tons. The handbags made are also exported to the White House in the United States.
The grains produced by adding calcium carbonate (PE) resin can be made by everyone, but to achieve more than 75% calcium carbonate, we are Taiwan, and we are the first in the world. Our ratio is also a patent. "
Then enter the next step of the process, heat and pressurize, and stretch to become a thin pulp.
Rolls of white paper are continuously conveyed. This is already a semi-finished product of stone paper. Finally, it can be shipped after coating. From the first generation of equipment, after 20 years of refining, a new time-saving technology has been developed. , the papermaking speed can be 10 times faster.
Put the marble powder into the instrument, and after making it, it turns into a grain of carbonic acid grains less than one centimeter, which is an important raw material for stone paper.
Song Jinyuan, marketing director of the environmentally friendly composite materials industry: "The second-generation equipment is now simplified a lot, which can save a lot of manpower. There are also equipment on the machine. After the whole roll is completed, it is wound on it. After the overall heat dissipation is completed , we can go to the front and it can be cut into paper.”
Reporter Liu Lijun: "This piece of paper in my hand is completely indistinguishable from other ordinary drawings, but the composition inside is quite different. 80% of it is stone powder, and no wood is used at all. Our papermaking technology can also make paper more environmentally friendly.”
Use stone powder to replace wood, and increase the calcium carbonate content from the original 20%, 50%, to 80%, becoming a leader in the paper industry, and pushing paper into the trend of ESG, because stone paper Even if it is discarded, it can be completely decomposed in nature within 6 months, which not only reduces environmental damage, but also allows waste to be recycled. .
Liang Xianhe, vice chairman of the environmental protection composite material industry: "Every ton of our stone paper can reduce the equivalent of 390 kilograms of carbon emissions. In addition to the 390 kilograms of carbon emissions, we can also reduce a large amount of air. pollution, as well as water pollution. So in the economy of the whole big cycle, we can use the recovered amount, the waste powder from this powder, and then use that glue, that recycled glue to put it Combined. So now almost most of the materials in our boxes are 90% recycled materials, so there is no need to go to additional felling, or to use new resources.”
The raw material of stone paper is a combination of 80% stone powder and 20% environmentally friendly plastic PE. Compared with traditional wood pulp paper, the production of 1 ton of stone paper can reduce the felling of 20 trees and 20,000 liters of water. It is also expected to replace 20% of the global annual output of 400 million tons of wood pulp paper. Calculated at a price of NT$30,000 per ton, it will replace the market output value of 2.4 trillion. Not only waste corners of marble, but also waste minerals can also be made into pellets, not just ordinary paper and packaging materials. Attacking the corrugated paper market of nearly 200 million per year, so that a large number of logistics cartons no longer become an environmental killer.
Liang Xianhe, vice chairman of the environmental protection composite material industry: "The corrugated box market is quite large, with a market of nearly 200 million tons a year. Assuming we only account for 10%, we have to make 20 million tons a year alone. One ton of paper is used to replace these cardboard and cartons. So 20 million tons of cartons. Basically, our contribution to environmental protection is large, and we can save nearly 7 million tons of carbon emissions. So basically we must put , Our contribution to environmental protection should be made more meaningful. In the next 5 to 10 years, in China, and even in Morocco, the Middle East, Europe, and the United States, there will be buyers who are negotiating to do a whole technology transfer.”
