Recycling paper into soft tissue


Our advanced paper recycling plant in Brisbane produces 20,000 tonnes of hygienic soft , recycled tissue from high quality waste paper every year. At every stage of the recycling process we employ environmentally responsible techniques.

Our revolutionary de-inking process does away with the need for bleaching. This even enables all wastewater in the mill to be recycled.
