Paper is a valuable material that can be used for a variety of purposes e.g., (food) packaging, newspapers, insulation, etc. The recycling industry collects and recycles paper into standardised quality grade paper in line with the EN 643 recycling standards. Recovered paper can then be used as a substitute or combined with virgin pulp to produce new paper. Recovered paper has a global supply and demand which goes far beyond just Europe.
