What is FSC® Forest Certification?

FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) Forest Certification is a system for certifying properly managed forests.

FSC® forest certification and responsible use of wood and paper

Recycling wood and paper is of course important, but it cannot be reused forever. We will continue to use forest products in the future. With more FSC® certified products made by COC certified holders on the market and more purchased by businesses and consumers, more forests will be used while being properly managed. As a result, the use of wood and paper can be continued in the future without causing destruction or deterioration of the forest.

Environmentally friendly paper

Bagasse

Bagasse is sugar cane pomace, and about 100 million tons of bagasse are produced from sugar cane, which is produced annually in the world at about 1.2 billion tons. This bagasse is partly used as fuel and feed for livestock, but many are discarded (industrial waste). “Bagasse pulp” is made from this originally discarded bagasse as a raw material for paper.

Environmental benefits of bagasse

Utilization of unused resources, waste recycling

Bagasse is a by-product of sugar production and the surplus is treated as waste.

Alternative raw material for wood pulp = protection of forest resources

By using bagasse as a raw material for paper, the amount of wood used can be reduced.

Does not emit organic chlorine compounds

The bagas pulp we use does not use chlorine in the bleaching process (. = ECF: Elemental Chlorine Free: chlorine-free bleaching)

Co2 reduction, global warming prevention, energy saving

At the bagasse pulp production plant we use, the raw material bagasse is transported from the adjacent sugar plant by a belt conveyor, so compared to wood raw materials and other non-wood raw materials, felling, collection, collection, etc. It is estimated that the energy required for transportation is small, and Co2 emissions of about 179 kg per ton of pulp can be reduced.

The hybrid bagasse series is an environmentally friendly product that achieves [FSC® certification x bagasse pulp formulation] and [luxury art quality x package suitability].

All products are FSC® certified and baggas pulp blended paper, and have a quality design with printability and reproducibility comparable to Super Art paper and box making and processing suitability. Not only for postcards, cards, mounts, etc., but also for packaging, it has ruled lines and foil stamping suitability, so it can be used for various purposes. The product variation as ivory-based paperboard is abundant that other manufacturers do not have.
