Europe’s paper and pulp industry is the second biggest in the world. Figures from 2014 show the sector manufactured more than 130 million tonnes – that’s around 23% of global production. It’s estimated 11 million tonnes of that ended up as non-recyclable waste.
The EU’s paperChain project aims to harness this waste paper material so that it can be used as a resource in other industries, such as construction and mining.
