DUBAI, Dec. 11, 2018 (Local News) -Paper Arabia 2018, an upcoming biennial event in Dubai, UAE will focus on eco-friendly products and artificial pulp as well as offer insights on green pulp-based products and using paper for a sustainable future, said event organisers.

Studies indicate that each year, around 8 million metric tons of plastic enter the world’s oceans. In an endeavour to stop plastic pollution, governments in more than 60 countries have introduced levies and bans to combat single-use plastic waste, according to UN Environment, an agency of the United Nations.

“Plastic is an easy form of convenience, but the scope of pollution it causes is alarming. As such, several governments around the world have banned plastic and encourage the use of paper,” added Lamyae Zafati, exhibition manager, Al Fajer Information and Services, organisers of Paper Arabia 2018, which is set to take place in Dubai World Trade Centre from December 16 to 18.
