The History of Paper


For experts, amateurs or aficionados, this “History of paper” fact sheet gives a fascinating insight into the origins of paper and where the paper manufacturing industry is today. While we are unfortunately, still reliant on imports for much of our paper requirements and heavily reliant on exports for almost 50% of our recovered paper, we still have a robust paper sector. With new mills opened in the last few years in all sectors and recycling of waste paper becoming more and more part of the national psyche, there should be a long and sustainable future for the industry.
