RAW MATERIAL

The waste paper or waste fibre is paper which has already served the purpose for which it was produced and which is reused in the production cycle.
Cellulose may be used repeatedly: after being used for its primary purpose, it may be re-used to produce new paper, with a view typical of a circular economy that it is based on the recovery and recycling of paper and cardboard. It defines new perspectives and opportunities for sustainable development and full green activity.

The performance of the fiber of the pulp paper compared to the cellulose is very high. From the use of pulp paper there is a saving of water consumption and energy requirements from 50% to 80%.

The waste paper used by the Paper Mill has different origins:

Industrial and special waste, that is waste coming from manufacturing industries, paper or publishing industries, offices, commercial activities, public entities, packaging companies, etc

They are important quantities of excellent quality as they are directly collected from the place of production of the waste by specialized companies, which are using dedicated resources and containers that preserve their integrity;

Urban waste of domestic origin produced by families which are recycling whose recovery is organised by the Town hall.

Paper mill of Bosco Marengo joining the holding ReLife, formed by companies specialized in the collection, transport, start-up, recycling and recovery of waste paper and cardboard, has ensured it-self a continuous and constant supply of high quality of secondary raw material in its production processes.
The production of paperboard from recycled paper provides an initial treatment of the waste paper with the reduction of other non-paper materials.

The raw material used by the Paper Mill of Bosco Marengo comes from 100% of recycled paper. The biggest waste paper comes from the recovery of cardboard, paper mix and kraft cardboard.
The reuse of paper and board generates different social and environmental benefits:

waste becomes a secondary raw material and there is a substantial decrease in the production of waste;

reduction of the use of primary resources and consequent cutting of the consumption of virgin raw materials: energy, water, wood (cellulose). There is a reduction of the deforestation because fewer plants are cut to produce new paper;

increase of the number of green jobs with a strong growth in environmental sectors related to recycling, collection, and treatment and processing of secondary raw material.
