Innovations for even more consistent sustainability

With the resin-saving RSP® decor paper from TECHNOCELL®, Felix Schoeller offers a sustainable solution that leads to lower CO2 emissions. This resin-saving decor paper is specially refined, which reduces thickness swelling. As a result, users save up to 14 percent of energy during the drying process after impregnation. This reduces the annual CO2 emissions of an impregnation system by more than 1,800 tons.

The European market leader for specialty papers is also setting standards in the field of recycling. Felix Schoeller takes back waste paper from the market and recycles it to produce new decor papers. This avoids considerable amounts of waste every year - and also reduces the supply of fresh pulp from distant countries by 13,000 tons.

A third pillar in the specialty paper manufacturer's sustainability efforts is the use of alternative fibers for the production of sustainable decor papers. The company relies on annual plants such as grass, straw and bamboo to meet growing market demand for resource-saving papers. The "Second Harvest" concept also plays an important role here. This involves using peelings and fruit residues that were previously left over after the harvest. This shortens supply chains and reduces dependency on traditional pulp sources.

Felix Schoeller relies on close cooperation in all its sustainability activities - and offers partners an open exchange of ideas. "Because the major challenges facing our society can only be successfully overcome together," says the company. You can find more information on the individual topics here.
