Uses of Asia Pulp and Paper byproducts.

A paper mill is an industrial facility that manufactures paper from wood pulp for commercial and consumer use. However, the purpose of mills has expanded to include a wide variety of other uses: some mills produce tissue paper, facial tissue, toilet tissue for sanitary napkins or tampons, corrugated cardboard boxes for storage material or packaging; others make newsprint with recycled fiber; still others manufacture coated papers or special pulps (such as groundwood pulp) used in inkjet printing.

Pulp and paper byproduct is the organic material generated in the paper production process that cannot be recycled with profit. Asia Pulp and Paper byproduct, also known as APP byproduct, is a pulp-and-paper byproduct that is made from mixed waste paper and cardboard. It could possibly be used for the production of small craft items such as baskets and containers. Other uses for APP byproduct that have been mentioned include animal bedding and insulation.

What are the uses of Pulp and Paper byproduct?

  1. Used in making of fertilizer

Pulp and paper byproduct, being a byproduct of the wood fiber production process, is often used as a fertilizer.

  1. Pharmaceuticals

Used as a source of constituents such as choline and catecholamine in pharmaceutical production.

  1. Solvents

Used in the production of various solvents, such as acetone, ethanol and benzene which are important components of chemical processes like paints and perfumes. Also useful to clean up small spills (which are becoming more common due to modern technology). It is also used in the food industry for baking powders and mayonnaise mix.

  1. Construction Materials

Used in construction materials as a source of calcium, silica and potassium. These elements are important in the production of concrete, silicate minerals and cement.

  1. Textile Industry

Used as a raw material for manufacturing textiles and clothing. It is used to make fabric that is durable and strong, so it can resist soil or animal waste, or mildew from humidity or chemicals. It can also block ultraviolet rays from sunlight to speed up the aging process of clothing fabrics and also raise the comfortable temperature level for wearing clothes on hot days or during summer months.

  1. Automotive Industry

Used as a consumable material to produce the exhaust system that delivers and directs the exhaust gases from internal combustion engines, which generates more power and reduce overall fuel consumption.

  1. Paper Industry

Used in paper manufacturing, especially as a raw material for papermaking with wood foundry process. It also as a co-product of paper manufacturing, being recycled to make raw materials for making new paper products. Paper industry will always have an eco friendly reason for continuing its existence!

  1. Other Industries

Pulp and paper byproduct can also be used in many other industries such as petrochemical, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, cement making and others.


Pulp and paper byproduct is an important raw material which can be produced while minimizing the negative impact on the environment. The Asia Pulp and Paper Group has a business model that not only serves the environment but also creates more jobs for the local people and thus plays a very important role in our economy. It is the main source of income for many families.
