Our stonepaper formular
Stonepaper is nothing new and has existed in the paper industry for over 40 years. The main component of our products is a material that is of essential importance for our world: Calcium carbonate (CaCo3). This waste material from the construction and mining industry binds perfectly with the help of our bio-polyethylene resin. Since the limestone is indicated as the main component, it is called rock paper.
How is woodless stone paper produced?
After cleaning and crushing the limestone to calcium carbonate powder, the latter is mixed without the influence of water or other toxic chemicals. Heat and pressure are applied, and after many rotations through some extremely heavy rollers, the material is thin enough to be used as paper. The mixture is already naturally white and therefore does not require any further bleaching process. The silky smooth paper rolls are then cut and bound into woodless unique notebooks. The whole process is energy efficient and the CO2 emission is up to 65% lower than in conventional paper production.

RecyclabilityThe stone paper of our producers is Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certified. This means that we are committed to continuous improvement standards and always work towards better practices in the reuse of materials. However, C2C certification does not only assess the entire product life cycle. You can be sure that our stonepaper will not harm the planet even if you stop using it.
You can recycle woodless stone paper in the Type 2 plastic stream. In its natural state the calcium carbonate decomposes back into its original powder form and can be used as a filler for future products. If pages land in a landfill, they will decompose in the sun within 12 months.
