The process starts with the collection and sorting of post-consumer wastepaper (either used office paper or printers’ off cuts). This is mixed with water to create a wet pulp.

The pulp is pumped through a series of screens and separators to remove impurities like staples, glue, etc. The pulp is then de-inked by passing it through a further set of screens.

The pulp is then pumped across another set of screens to remove excess water. A series of presses and specialised rollers remove any last moisture from the fibre to form a single, continuous sheet of paper.

In its final stage, the 100% recycled paper is wound onto large reels before being rewound into smaller reels for consumers.
