Criteria: Pros (advantages) Cons (disadvantages)Clever Processes - To reduce the Causes pollution amount of paper Consumespaper making waste generated by energy offices; Consumes water To reduce the Produces waste demand for paper Biodegrading made from virgin difficulties wood fibre; To save our Planet Earth from Global Warming and Greenhouse Effect; To stop deforestation and to save our forest reserves. Recycled paper can be To make new paper it turned into new paper so damages the ozone and new trees dont have to be pollutes the very air we cut down which could save breathe. wildlife.1. Manufacture and distributematerials/resources 1 million tonnes of paper(e.g. wood - and pulp.amount/volume Wood is a sustainablerequired to make resource with very lowpaper) carbon emissions.2. Process treatment To form paper the pulpof raw materials (e.g. flows onto a continuousforming, pressing, moving plastic meshdrying paper) screen. Pressing is the process where water is extracted from the pulp. Drying is where the sheet moves onto a series of drying rollers.3. Bleaching Elemental chlorine(required to make bleaches.white paper) Minimised the use of chlorine based compounds.4. Output (what is High quality office reflexproduced) paper. 30 tonne roll.

Marketing AP Efficient, flexible andproducts, ordering & experienced sales teamsdelivery provide customers quality, value and a range of products. Speed to where orders can be processed and delivered.7. Sourcing paper Saw mill residue from Replacing twice the housing and furniture amount of seedlings industries. each year. Waste paper recovered from kerbside collection or purchased from industrial recycling operators. From certified forest sources. Expert technical staff. Products can be developed to suit specific end applications. Paper for high strength packaging products.8. Speciality papers Registered watermarks, sensitised security grades, coloured, embossed and a broad range of fine writing papers. Quality brand products.Clever Supply andLogistics9.

Overseas sales PAPER PRODUCTS MARKETING GROUP located around the globe like Hong Kong-China, Kuala Lumpur-Malaysia, Taipei-Taiwan, Singapore and the head office in Melbourne-Australia co- ordinate to more than 100 ports located in 65 countries like Neuss (Dusseldorf) – Germany and Portland Oregon-USA.Clever Use ofResources /12. Renewable Australian Paperenergy Maryvale Victoria’s Largest Industrial Renewable Energy Generator producing more than 50% of its own energy needs. Lignin is used as a fuel to produce steam which in turn generates power.13. Water Forefront of water Percentage ratio could beuse/recycling conservation initiatives. higher. 15% of recycled water purchased which lowers resources used to produce each tonne of paper.14. Recycling of fibre White liquor componentsresources for reuse in the pulping process and water continually recycled.Clever SustainabilityManagement15. Environmental, Positive effect on social,social and economic economic andsustainability environmental outcomes for communities. New opportunities for
growth and security.16. Certification and ISO 14001currency Forestry Chain of Custody Certification (FSC) (PEFC)17. Carbon Neutral Government certifiedpaper carbon neutral paper.Our Future18. Future trends and Clever improvement inrequirements fibre sourcing policies, Latest technology allowing extraction of maximum value for resources with newer and better products.Anything else you can People need paper The production and usethink of? products and we need of paper has a number of sustainable, adverse effects on the environmentally safe environment production.19. other polluters Pulp mills contribute to air, water and land pollution. Worldwide, the pulp and paper industry is the fifth largest consumer of energy, accounting for four precent of the entire worlds energy use. The pulp and paper industry uses more water to produce a ton of product than any other industry. http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Paper_pollution20.WATER AND AIR The United StatesPOLLUTION Environmental Protectionhttp://www.edurite.com Agencyâ€Ž (EPA) has/kbase/disadvantages- found that recycling causesof-recycling-paper 35% less water pollution and 74% less air pollution than making virgin paper. Pulp mills can be sources of both air and water pollution, especially
if they areproducing bleached pulp.Modern mills produceconsiderably less pollutionthan those of a fewdecades ago. Recyclingpaper decreases thedemand for virgin pulp andthus reduces the overallamount of air and waterpollution associated withpaper manufacture.Recycled pulp can bebleached with the samechemicals used to bleachvirgin pulp, but hydrogenperoxide and sodiumhydrosulphite are the mostcommon bleaching agents.Recycled pulp, or papermade from it, is known asPCF (process chlorine free)if no chlorine-containingcompounds were used inthe recycling process.However, recycling millsmay have polluting by-products, such as sludge.De-inking at Cross PointesMiami, Ohio mill results insludge weighing 22% ofthe weight of wastepaperrecycled.
