Changing the future of paper

Powered by Dry Fiber Technology

A combination of three processes is used to turn waste paper2 into new paper – defibrating, binding and forming. Unlike conventional papermaking, PaperLab uses virtually no water from start to finish. This virtually dry process3 makes it possible to produce new paper in a small, localised cycle.

Destroy and recycle sensitive documents on demand

When data security is crucial for your business, PaperLab delivers absolute certainty that key confidential waste is safely and effectively destroyed. It removes toner and inks and takes the waste paper2 back to its fibres

Your information stays safely on site and is never entrusted to external contractors.

This new solution goes way beyond conventional levels of information destruction, with a rating of P7.

ISO/IEC 21964-2 Security Level P7: Destruction of data carriers in such a way that the data on them cannot be reproduced with current technology or scientific knowledge (<5 mm² particle size).


Standard shredding solution

The traditional process to destroy confidential office paper is by shredding. This involves bagging up the waste paper which then needs to be collected or delivered to the shredding plant.

Shredded paper is only partially destroyed, despite undergoing a time-consuming process. It also needs to be processed and collected.

External specialist confidential waste paper processing plants can be expensive, require logistical organisation and have a large CO2 footprint.

New paper must be sourced, purchased and delivered, requiring more planning and logistics.


PaperLab in-house solution

The waste paper is collected or dropped off, then stacked securely in-house, ready for PaperLab.
Within three minutes, the new paper emerges from PaperLab4 (after the first sheet feeding started).

Contribute to a circular economy

Upcycle and create paper on demand

PaperLab has the versatility your business needs, being able to produce paper at high speed and in a range of formats and finishes on demand:

  • Size A4 and A3

  • Plain paper stock at 90g/m2

  • Card stock from 150-240g/m2

  • A range of colours

  • Business cards

  • Notepads

PaperLab can handle waste paper2 in A4 or optional A3 sizes, and copy paper from 64g/m2 to 108g/m2.

PaperLab can produce up to 720 A4 sheets or 360 A3 sheets per hour4 after the first sheet has been produced, which equates to 5,760 sheets per 8-hour work cycle.

First sheet out time is three minutes4. This recycled paper can be used with ordinary laser printers, inkjet printers and copiers.

⁴ Approximate values. Output speed, first sheet out time may vary depending on environmental conditions.

⁵ DIN 6738 standard classifies the lifespan of papers and is based entirely on the effect of accelerated aging on the strength of the paper. Standard approved by The Deutsches Institut für Normung (German Standards Institute). LDK 24-85 is the highest lifespan class. Papers in this lifespan class may be called ‘non-aging’ as according to today’s level of knowledge and with gentle handling and storage, they are expected to have a lifespan that can meet the highest requirements.
