The “Kraft” grade produced is a 100% recovered paper based product. One of its major constituent is the old corrugated carton (OCC), in addition to old news papers (ONP) and mixed office waste (MOW). The dominant presence of the OCC is the reason behind the friendly warm shade of the Kraft products.
OCC is the recovered form of pre-consumer or post-consumer carton, used mainly for the fabrication of folding boxes. The fibres used originally in the production of carton are normally of the Unbleached Softwood Kraft (UBSK) type. By not bleaching the pulp, the resulting fibre retains its original colour which is light brown. The kraft pulping process in conjunction with the high fibre length of the softwood fibre are responsible for giving the carton based product made from OCC, its typical strength. This is the reason why the “kraft” line has been particularly successful as serviette and towel products.
The paper industry has been recovering and reusing waste paper for decades at steadily increasing rate and depending on its geographical location, it could be considered as the most important fibrous raw material for many mills.
Paper recycling positively influences the environment by three means:
- Manufacturing recycled paper produces 55% less air and water pollution than manufacturing paper from virgin wood.
- It conserves resources and generates less pollution during manufacturing because fibres have already been processed once.
- It reduces solid waste because it diverts usable paper from the waste stream thus help in cutting down land filling and CO₂ emissions due to incineration.
