    Carbon Neutral Banana-based Paper
    Papyrus
    Australia Ltd. has developed a unique papermaking method converting
    banana tree trunks into paper using minimal energy when compared with
    traditional pulp-based processes. The company’s patented Papyrus
    process uses no chemicals and water is a by-product of the
    manufacturing.The company is undertaking a life cycle analysis
    including an evaluation of the impact of removing the waste trunks from
    banana farms. “The existing paper industry has a large environmental
    and carbon footprint. The Papyrus process offers the industry a timely
    and practical solution to reducing this footprint without a massive
    investment in new technology,” says Papyrus chairman Dr David Wyatt.
