We are NER Ltd – innovators in nature
For over 25 years our research has been dedicated to developing processes to transform agricultural waste into paper pulp without causing any harm to nature.
In 2009 our vision came to fruition with the birth of our first business in the UK, Natural Notebook Company, developing the most environmentally friendly process to produce cardboard from 100% straw and selling a beautiful range of stationery products hand made from straw.
IN 2013, our experience and knowledge has led us to develop ECO STRAW PULPING, an innovative pulping process to transform any straw surplus (wheat, barley, oat, rice) into paper pulp but using much less energy than existing processes and without producing liquid waste. Eco Straw Pulping is an extremely environmentally friendly process as the chemicals are re-used in a closed loop.
The mini mills can be installed as independent units or retrofitted to an existing paper mill to produce marketable bleached or unbleached straw pulp to be used in all different types of paper or packaging products.
For large-scale production, the new manufacturing concept is to produce part of straw pulp (unbleached un-cleaned) and by-products from straw onsite. Paper or Pulp Mills can then transform this unbleached un-cleaned pulp into a clean white marketable pulp or a paper or packaging product in a central unit.
This new and exciting process and concept not only reduce waste and carbon emissions but add a significant new income stream to farm businesses as straw even with high moisture content can be processed and farmers can be involved in the pulp production as well.
