Paper - fiction and facts

Paper was invented 1,900 years ago and today it is an integral part of our daily life: as a print medium to communicate information and knowledge, as a packing material, for daily hygiene, or as a special material for a variety of applications, from banknotes to medical filters.

As with all production activities, papermaking uses resources. Unlike other materials, however, paper has major environmental advantages. It is made from wood, a renewable raw material, and is a prime example of successful recycling.
