We already know that apples are true all-rounders. And now they’re even being turned into paper! At the core of the idea is a simple innovation: The paper is made from the apple waste that is left over, for example, during the production of apple juice. The fruit peel, which contains sugar and cellulose, is first dried and then ground before it is finally processed into "Eco-paper" at a paper factory.
The apple paper comprises 20% apple waste and 80% cellulose, and it is just as durable and sturdy as standard recycled paper - the results when used for printing are of comparably good quality. It’s all good news for sustainability and for biodegradability! And if you’re wondering whether the paper smells or tastes of apples - spare yourself the taste test. It tastes of paper. And definitely not like apples.
