By-products from forest maintenance: wood from thinning and treetops. Thinning is a natural process and is required for the proper maintenance of a cultivated forest. The aim is to remove weak and poorly developed trees in order to create more space for stronger trees to grow and to maintain the forest throughout its development.
Founded in 1925 by foresters in the Landes forest, “Papeteries de Gascogne” has sought to create a market for maritime pine by-products and promote the sustainable development of the forest.
The Kraft process is a completely integrated and zero-waste manufacturing process: self-production of energy, recovery and regeneration cycles of all materials produced during the process, waste recycling.
Brown Kraft paper is unbleached to retain the natural wood colour and keep chemical treatments to a minimum, making it a 100% natural biomaterial and a genuine ecological alternative: it is bio-based, biodegradable, recyclable and compostable.
