A Greener Alternative For Improving Strength In Recycled Packaging

From Pulp & Paper International 2012

Enzymes are nature’s catalysts, present in every living organism, to carry out a wide range of chemical reactions. Enzymes perform at incredible speeds, which has the immediate advantage of increasing the efficiency of many chemical processes, thereby making them more sustainable. Identifying a specific enzyme, Maximyze® 2540, to improve strength in recycled unbleached fiber represents the future for improving the overall sustainability of the facilities producing packaging grades.
