    Paprec Group, recycling wood

    At last, a newspaper read does not mean a tree is dead! With 1 ton of old papers, we can make 900kg of recycled paper, whereas it takes 2 to 3 tons of wood to make 1 ton of “normal” paper! 1 ton of recycled paper saves 17 trees, 20 litres of water, and, more importantly, the equivalent of 1000 litres of petrol. In Europe, 41% of paper/cardboard and 56% of packaging are collected and recycled.
