Our revolutionary process

A combination of three processes is used to turn used paper into new paper – defibrating, binding and forming. Unlike traditional processes, PaperLab does not use water during the paper making process. This virtually dry process3 makes it possible to produce fresh, new sheets of paper in a small, localised cycle.

 
 

Used Paper

Defibration

Removes all ink and toner and reduces the waste paper2 to its fibers.

Binding

Brings the clean fibers back together, strengthening them and forming new paper to a specified colour and weight.

Forming

Forms the paper by pressing, then cuts the new paper into A4 or A3 sheets.

New Paper

Dry Fiber Paper

 

Create high-performance materials by defibrating, binding, and transforming raw materials to their respective applications

In turn, this technology helps contribute to a circular economy in the following ways:

Preservation of water resources as PaperLab paper requires up to 99% less water*

Reduction of carbon dioxide

Conservation of wood resources

Destroy and recycle sensitive documents in a flash

Data security is crucial to your business, PaperLab delivers absolute certainty that key confidential waste is safely and effectively destroyed. It removes toner and inks, and channels the waste paper2 back to its fibres. Your information stays safely on site and is never entrusted to external contractors.

Upcycle and create paper on demand

PaperLab has the versatility your business needs. It can produce up to 720 A4 sheets or 360 A3 sheets per hour4 after the first sheet has been produced, which equates to 5,760 sheets per 8-hour work cycle. First sheet-out time is is 3 minutes4. This recycled paper can be used with ordinary laser printers, inkjet printers and copiers.
