EVEN LAMINATED PAPER CAN NOW BE TURNED INTO WEALTH
Groundbreaking research at our partner company FLEXORESEARCH has developed a series of blended enzymes that can recover pulp or fibre from laminated paper such as beverage cartons, sticker backliners or cigarette packets, that were previously hard or impossible to recycle.
The WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM has chosen FLEXORESEARCH as one of the Technology Pioneers 2011, because of its revolutionary method (see NEWS). CNN reported about Mr. Paijit Sangchai, the inventor of FLEXORESEARCH Technology and one of our highly appreciated "Partners of Science". (see NEWS)
VIRGO is also very proud, to welcome Mr. Paijit Sangchai as a Member of VIRGOs >Board of Science<
The blends of enzymes that peel away plastic, aluminum and other substances from paper are unique. Just to give an example:
From 300 tons of coated paper, it is possible producing 270 tons of recycled pulp, plastic and metals.
This pulp can be used as a replacement for asbestos in construction materials as well as many other applications because the quality of the recycled material is not compromised. It's stronger, safer and cheaper.
The benefits are manifold. Making more types of paper which can be recycled can help protect forests, reduce waste that would end up burned or in landfills, boost the incomes recyclers in the Third World, improve air quality and lessen health risks. The goal is to turn waste into wealth and pollution into profit.
