How do recycling plants break down paper for recycling?



  1. 0 Votes

    After collecting and sorting the paper to be recycled, the mill will place the paper into a large pulper that breaks the paper down into small fibers with water, chemicals, and a small amount of heat. The pulp of cellulose fibers is then cleaned and deinked with air and water. This pulp is then ready to be refined and made into paper again. Most mills will have their own unique set of processes and procedures, but this basic outline will remain the same.
