The papermaking process of our bamboo paper in Europe.
As you may know, our bamboo toilet paper is currently being produced in a B-Corp Certified factory in Europe.
They are pioneers in carbon-neutral paper manufacturing. How did they reach that goal?
Paper making is a process which requires huge amounts of energy. For that, they use their on-site solar plant, with 8.000+ solar panels and a biomass plant to generate steam, which is powered by residues from nearby forests.
If more energy is needed, they purchase it from suppliers with 100% renewable certified sourcing.
In paper making, quite a lot of water is needed as well. After using it, the water is returned to the river in the same conditions as they initially took it, thanks to their water treatment plant.
The residues generated during the water treatment process are later re-used to generate electricity. That way they advance towards a zero-waste horizon.
They also avoid using bleach and other unnecessary chemicals.
Instead, their products are based on unbleached fibres.
They have replaced all plastic packaging by cardboard.
It’s not only recycled and recyclable: it’s also highly stackable.
That allows great logistic optimisation. Less trucks = less emissions!
Because their goal is to develop the world’s most sustainable paper.
Additionally, their bamboo products have been rewarded multiple certificates, including:
EcoVadis Gold (maximum score in CSR)
Manufactured in a B Corp plant
ISEGA – food contact compliant (for the kitchen rolls)
