In contrast to the production process for paper made out of fresh fibres, producing paper from recovered paper not only saves resources but also generates less waste water and uses less water and energy. Finished products made from recycled paper that has been awarded the Blue Angel environmental label are guaranteed to be made from 100% recovered paper. The use of chlorine, optical brighteners and halogenated bleaching agents is also prohibited during the production process. In addition, other materials such as plastic, metal, etc. are only permitted to account for a maximum of 5% of the total mass of the product.
If you are looking for copy and multifunctional paper made from 100% recovered paper, you will find it under the scope of DE-UZ 14a.
