It is the recovery of waste materials after use, with various physical and chemical processes, as well as reproductive processes.
What is Recycling?
Recycling is the recycling of wastes that can be recycled through various physical and / or chemical processes and converted into secondary raw materials. In other words, it can be defined as recyclable waste materials that are not used by using them in any way.
The paper is first separated into its fibers in water for the preparation of the pulp. If necessary, it is cleaned for foreign matter without fiber. As the ink separator, sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate is used. Then ready-made paper fibers are used in recycled paper production. Waste paper cannot be recycled continuously. With each recovery, the length of the fibers is shortened and new paper cannot be produced without adding adjuvants to the fibers to adhere.
When 1 ton of used paper is recycled;
• 12400 m3 of greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide, can be removed from the air.
• Continuing to produce 12400 m3 of oxygen gas,
• Protection of 17 adult trees that provide oxygen needs of 34 people,
• 32 m3 of water savings consumed by 3 families per month,
• Saving 1750 liters of fuel-oil and -2,4 m3 of garbage storage space that two families will consume for the purpose of warming in the winter months,
• It is possible to save 4100 kW / h of electrical energy that 20 families will consume for a month.
