It is hard to imagine a world without paper, even in these times of electronic and digital communication. As well as writing and reading materials, the paper industry produces large volumes of packaging materials, board, tissues and many other wood-derived products.

Paper-making is itself a very environmentally and ecologically sensitive industry, with constant pressure on water use, energy use and waste production and treatment.  Our wide range of natural and renewable raw materials therefore provides a sound basis for the development of safe and sustainable solutions for the paper industry.

Our products are used in various stages of the paper-making process, and also in the inks and coatings that are subsequently added. They are also used in the recycling of paper during the de-inking process.
