Lancashire's BPC UK Make significant investment in paper recycling
BPC UK has a strong commitment to the environment which means they are always looking for ways to improve their recycling rates and thanks to investment in their paper recycling
What happens to this paper trim?
The trim is fed through a hydraulic operated extraction system that takes the trim straight from the machine sends it through a system of pipes above the factory and pumps the trim into a baling room. In the baling room, it is fed through a baling machine and packed into bales each of which is approximately 25kg.
The paper bales are then collected by the recycling plant, de-inked if necessary, and converted into paper pulp, ready to be made into a variety of recycled paper products.
And it's not only the paper trim that is recycled. BPC UK also ensures that any damaged rolls, cardboard packaging, and other paper-based off-cuts are sent for recycling.
The rationale for recycling is that it reduces the need to harvest forestland, which supports their sustainable forestry principles. For every tonne of paper sent for recycling approximately 2 tonnes of wood are saved.
It is estimated that if half of the world's paper was recycled it would avoid the harvesting of 20 million acres of forestland.
