Visit Schut Paper mill

 

After the presentation at Treasure Island on 29th of November 2013 we met Rene Kort of Schut papers. He is already working with this material and very enthusiastic about our research. He develops art papers with bagasse. He invited us to visit the paper mill for a tour along the whole paper making process.

We were surprised how they receive the bagasse cellulose. The large pressed sheets looked into our eyes already like paper. The processing of these sheets already happened in the country of origin so that only the necessary material moves to the factories for paper handling. The production process was very understandable because the machines were hardly shielded due to the fact that the implementation is still done by hand.
