How Paper is Made

 

Making Paper:

 

 

Making paper is an interesting process, but the explanation is best left to the experts. Today's link comes courtesy of How Products Are Made and features a detailed explanation of paper making along with some illustrations.

One important element that the printing industry has tried to address is the impact paper making has on the environment. There have been a number of initiatives taken by the both the print and paper industries to reduce the amount of forests consumed to make paper. Two of the most successful have been using more and more recycled products, paper, cardboard, cloth, to make paper pulp. The second has been actively planting trees solely for making paper, with an eye on developing hybrid plants with faster growth cycles and renewable products like bamboo. The biggest impact for everyone has been the reduction of everyday printing. For more information check out:

Lastly, below is a short film by the Paper Mill company on how paper is made from recycled goods.
