Have you ever wondered which are the procedures necessary for producing the boxes you see on the shelves?
A sheet of paper or cardboard is made from cellulose fibres. These fibres are mainly extracted from recycled wood or paper and board.
- Wood comes mainly from forests, from forestry cracks, as well as from timber, carpentry, furniture and construction.
- Recycled paper and cardboard (paper and cardboard waste) have various origins: the industry (from paper or cardboard processing processes, industrial and commercial packaging, unpublished newspapers, office products, etc.) and household (old newspapers, household packaging, etc.).
- Auxiliary materials (fillers, additives …) can be added during paper making to help improve paper characteristics.
