Benefits from Increasing Paper Recovery Rate

During 2007 and 2008 calendar year, 2,060,000 tons of recyclable paper was collected:

>  Income generating - did not go to landfill
>  Increased Job Opportunities Saving Landfill Space
>  If all household paper/cardboard was recycled million m3 of landfill space would be saved per annum (Local Authorities would in the process
    save substantially in costs per annum from reduced collection and landfill costs).
>  40% less energy is required to manufacture paper from recovered paper. Recycled fibre reduces air emissions in papermaking by 70%
For Every Ton of Paper Recycled
>  3 m3 of landfill space is saved; this reduces costs to municipalities in that their transport
    costs are reduced and it frees up space at landfill sites. (Visualise 1,030,000 tons of
    paper at a landfill site).
>  17 trees are put to other uses. Trees sequester carbon. (It is noteworthy that growing
    trees for paper manufacture is done in a responsible way; trees are a renewable resource
    and in SA 80% of our plantations are FSC certified - the highest in the world)
>  A substantial amount of energy is saved - energy saved from paper recycling per annum
    is sufficient to provide electricity to 512 homes for a year).
>  There is a reduction of coal based emissions of 1 ton of CO2
>  There is a reduction of electricity based emissions of 1.8 tons of CO2
This list of South African Standard Grades of Recovered Paper and Board gives a general description of the standard grades by defining what they do and do not contain. It is recognised that specific deals between buyer and supplier for standard grades with special specifications will still be necessary to meet individual requirements. Collected paper segregated from refuse sorting stations is not suitable for use in the paper industry. It is recommended that the standard is used at all industry levels. It secures the quality of the recovered paper supply to the paper mills.

Out-throws: The term out-throws is defined as all papers that are so manufactured or treated or are in such a form as to be unsuitable for consumption as the grade specified.

Prohibitive Materials: Anything which is not paper or paperboard and if included in the recovered paper may during processing cause damage to machines or interruptions to production.
Specific examples include:
>  Metal
>  Plastic
>  Glass
>  Textiles
>  Wood
>  Sand and building materials
>  Synthetic materials
>  Synthetic paper
Moisture Content in Recovered Paper & Board

Recovered paper and board will in principal be supplied with moisture of not more than the naturally occurring level - where the moisture content is higher than 10% on paper and 12% on kraft/board (of air dried weight), the additional weight in excess of the allowed percentage may be claimed back.


Method of Testing & Sampling

The equipment to be used for testing is either:
>  Emco AP 500 hand gauge (or equipment with similar specifications).
>  Oven dry method.
>  Aquabouy

In both cases a random representative sample will be taken and subject to testing by one or other of the above methods as agreed between buyer and seller. When new or advanced technology becomes available these procedures may change and will be communicated by way of revised schedule.
