Nafici Environmental Research are at the forefront of the research and development into the use of cereal straw (wheat, barley, oat, rice straw, etc.), corn stover, reed, cotton stems and more, transforming it efficiently into unbleached paper pulp.
FACT: Many countries producing wheat, rice or other cereals have a surplus of straw or other agricultural residues that is burnt or left to rot.
Several hundred millions of tonnes of agricultural residues are available every year that could be transformed into paper pulp and save hundreds of thousands of hardwood trees.
Our research team has developed a process that overcomes the cost disadvantages of a traditional straw pulping. Using our 30 years experience in cellulose extraction from wheat straw we now have an effective and efficient way to reintroduce pulp from wheat straw and other agri-residues pulp to the paper and packaging industry offering significant environmental advantages, by-products and income opportunities.
We are now at a very exciting time in our business. After building our first 100kg per day (KPD) EcoPulping pilot plant in Horsham, UK in 2014, we launched an upscaled 1000 (KPD) pilot plant in Linqing, China in 2017. This year, we are building our first commercial EcoPulping plant to produce 50 tonnes per day (TPD) marketable unbleached reed, wheat straw and maize stover pulp (to be upscaled to 200 TPD).
We are looking at developing our model globally enabling the paper and packaging industry using this more sustainable agricultural residues pulp.
