Replacement of Precipitated Calcium Carbonate (PCC) as functional filler
In cooperation with KCPK (Kenniscentrum Papier en Karton)
CO2 Cleanup Paper
The first CO2 cleanup paper-samples are made by Universität Darmstadt in two versions: handsheet (photo 1 & 2) and filter paper (photo 3 & 4). Each version is made in 4 different concentrations of CO2 Mineral Additive: 0%, 15%, 30% and 40%.
The optical properties and retention in the paper are quite good. Ofcourse, this is a first step. More experiments need to be done towards the perfect CO2 Cleanup Paper with a negative CO2 emission.
