Used and collected wastepaper is recycled and added with fresh fiber for strengthening properties, as recycled paper has the tendency to lose strength when reused. Impurities in recycled paper, and inferior quality are the main reasons they are not used in the packaging of food and beverages, due to the food safety standards and norms. Fresh sources majorly include wood pulp as raw materials, which accounts for almost 90%, while other raw materials include sugarcane bagasse, straw, hemp, cotton, etc.
