With each recycling phase, the cellulose (pulp) obtained from recycled paper
loses strength and is not able to supply the required stability.
Straw cellulose offers excellent stability and an enormously high pull and tear strength.
In order to enhance stability of recycled paper, straw cellulose is an ideal
additive to the recycled paper pulp.
Straw cellulose offers excellent features for all sorts of paper products
including the paper- and packaging industry.
The packaging sector is the fastest growing paper branch.
Straw cellulose reduces the need for wooden based cellulose.
Wood needs to grow for several decades before it is ready for processing.
Straw on the contrary is an agricultural by-product and is harvested annually.
Straw is not subjected to a competition among raw materials.
The PF – Cellulose is environmentally friendly, saves energy,
significantly reduces production cost and
produces a 20% higher yield compared to conventional soda-processes.
The economic advantages are manifold:
long term price stability, and an unparalleled low PF – Cellulose cost are just a few of them

During the cooking phase part of the straw reacts with the chemicals
and produces organic nitrogen.
Due to the organic fixation between the nitrogen and the lignin (somewhat comparable to glue),
the nitrogen does not dissipate, is washed out or evaporates.
The nutrients remain in the soil for the absorption by the plants.
This means that small amounts of PF – Fertilizer supplies large amounts of nourishment.
Compared to synthetic fertilizers the PF – Fertilizer requires substantially less energy to produce.
The fertilizer is additionally enriched with microorganisms.
The microbes promote soil cultures and together with the lignin also enhance humus formation.
The recirculation of an organic substance helps to maintain the correct humus / soil ratio.
Compared to other fertilizers same results are obtained by roughly 30% less PF – Fertilizer.
This organic long-term effect is due to the fixation supported by the lignin.
Therefore the nutrient supply to the plants is slower when compared to
common mineral fertilizers and by that much more sustainable.
Customers for both products are the paper industry, the agriculture- und chemical industry
as well as financial investors.
