We all know we need to recycle if we want to help save forests, but recycling is most important in places that consume considerable amounts of paper, like offices.
This machine that looks somewhat coarse has a surprising function: it recycles office paper and turns it into toilet paper.
It sounds brilliant, and although it still needs to be perfected, this first model fulfills its function, and with an average of only 40 sheets of paper introduced gives out a toilet paper roll. The machine works through 5 different steps: it shreds, dissolves, mixes, stretches and finally makes a roll of the new paper.
For the time being, the machine’s dimensions, and price, are rather massive: 600kg, almost 2 meters tall, and costing 100,000 $.
It’s a first step.
