Stone-Paper is an earth friendly, energy efficient and an acid free paper that is neither synthetic nor wood pulp fibre based.
Stone-Paper is a natural product manufactured from calcium carbonate, CaCO3, powder using proprietary additives as a bonding agent. The calcium carbonate is collected as waste material at existing limestone quarries and is ground up into a fine white chalk powder. A small quantity of non-toxic resin is then added and together these materials are converted into a printable substrate.
Stone-Paper is made by an unconventional papermaking process which results in lower cost, lower energy utilization, and a lower environmental impact on our earth.
- Is absolutely 100% tree free
- Has low carbon emissions
- Uses less energy
- Generates no effluent
- Uses no water, acid, blench or other chemicals
- Recycles all waste Stone-Paper.
Stone-Paper is photodegradable and able to be recycled into either paper or plastic channels.
- Saves 20 trees
- Water borne waste is reduced by 19.05 kgs
- Water flow of 28.31 litres is saved
- Atmospheric emissions are reduced by 107.1 kgs
- Energy savings of 6 million BTU's.
One tonne of stone produces one tonne of Stone-Paper but it requires 4 tonnes of wood to produce only one tonne of traditional wood pulp fibre paper
