Sustainability

Although wood fiber is considered a top renewable resource in the making of paper products – including tissue – there are other sustainable raw material sources possible utilizing more localised fiber options. Straw, bagasse, bamboo and microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) can also be used for the production of quality tissue products, with the raw material often able to be sourced much closer to the mill. Explore these different fiber options for paper products by learning from those already using them, as well as views from Valmet technology experts.
