Seiko Epson Corporation (“Epson”) has developed what it believes to be the world’s first compact office papermaking system capable of producing new paper from securely shredded waste paper without the use of water.
“PaperLab” produces the first new sheet of paper in about three minutes of having loaded it with waste paper and pressing the start button.
The system can produce about 14 A4 sheets per minute and 6,720 sheets in an eight-hour day.
A variety of different binders can be added to the fiberized material to increase the binding strength or whiteness of the paper or to add color, fragrance, flame resistance, or other properties needed for a given application.
Users can produce sheets of A4 or A3 office paper and even paper for business cards thanks to forming technology that allows them to control the density, thickness, and size of paper.
Kazuhiro Ichikawa, General Manager, A Project, Seiko Epson Corporation said, “I think it’s getting more important to promote a recycling-oriented society. So we want to propose new services or products that contribute a recycling-oriented society as a manufacture.”
PaperLab breaks documents down into paper fibers, so the information on confidential documents is completely destroyed.
It makes color papers too.
With PaperLab, Epson is looking to shorten and localize a new recycling process in the office. (ANI)
