Gangwar, A. K. (2016). "Benefits of polycups stock over other waste paper grades in paper recycling," BioRes. 11(3), 5658-5659.


It is never too late or too early to invent alternative processes for the betterment of our routine life. For paper production, trees are being cut in huge quantities each day, and this directly affects our day to day life by making atmospheric conditions less favorable. Waste paper can be recycled on average 4 to 6 times while maintaining acceptable qualities in recycled paper. To save forest resources, we should move ahead towards using more and more waste paper for paper production. A wasted resource can be recycled either to make the same product or by manufacturing new products, e.g. cardboard boxes, newspaper, writing and printing papers, and paper bags, etc. Several waste paper grades are not being fully utilized, and their use might allow increased paper recycling to produce new recovered paper with specified paper qualities. Polycup stock is an example of an under-utilized type of wastepaper that has the potential to substitute effectively for virgin pulp production.
