Coconut husk paper
Paper is crucial to humanity because we write down several invaluable pieces of information on paper. We pass on knowledge to our future generation through paper. However, only a few think about other ways to produce paper instead of cutting trees for paper. At bluecat paper, we don’t cut trees for paper

Coconut Fiber Has The Potential To Replace Wood in Paper Making
Coconut coir contains cellulose, it can be used in pulp manufacturing. It can also be utilized in the manufacture of composite materials consisting of a combination of coir fiber paper pulp and pulp formation of HVS.
Furthermore, fiber pulp fibers having the highest levels of alpha-cellulose mixed with pulp from waste paper utilized as raw material in the manufacture of composite paper. Then form a composite paper features such as strong pull, the ability to absorb ink, writing ability and endurance has been tested. The process of producing this kind of paper is quite complicated. They require cutting some parts of coconut husk into little pieces, cooking them, chopping, beating and finally sheet formation.
