Trends in the fiber industry
The paper industry is currently undergoing the greatest change an industry can imagine. A growing world population with new lifestyles changes markets and requires the sustainable use of natural resources. Paper from tomato plants, cosmetics made of eucalyptus or fiber-based insulating materials – the fiber industry is in motion, using new opportunities and exploring new markets for a sustainable future. Byproducts from the timber and pulp industry – electricity, biogas, turpentine – are gaining in economic significance, as are both new applications for natural fiber in the chemical and textile industries and new technologies for producing biofuels, carbon, and composite materials. If you want to succeed in this market, you need new ideas and the courage to invest in change.
