Grasspaper is the term used to describe a pulp-based product which, apart from virgin fibre from wood or recycled paper, has a significant proportion of grass fibres (at least 30 %). We supply the grass-based raw material for the industrial production of paper. Depending on its purpose, paper can be manufactured from up to 50 % grass fibres in industrial production. The formula can include both wood pulp and recycled paper. Grass paper is ideal for food packaging (e.g. for fruit, vegetables, eggs, milk, etc.), dry foods (such as cereals, confectionery and baked goods) and cosmetics and pharmacy products.
It’s also great for service packaging (folding boxes, labels, display stands, brochures). The process to yield the raw material from dried grass is protected by more than 60 patents worldwide. Grass paper is recyclable and compostable and holds all certificates and approvals for extensive use in the paper and packaging industry.
Our ecological responsibility is also our fundamental purpose – to enable the sustainable production of paper from grass
The exploitation of previously unused grasslands (buffer strips) enables additional sources of income for agriculture and also creates jobs in regions with high rural depopulation and unemployment.
When it comes to sustainability, the production process for grass paper wins hands down against paper made of wood pulp – we achieve CO2 reductions of up to 95%! How do we do it?
In comparison, the production of one tonne of paper from wood is as follows:
