A traditional waste stream is related to greenhouse crops: removal of leaves for the better development of the fruit or vegetable; a substantial share of wasted crops after harvesting; and, biomass resulting from seasonally clearing greenhouses. Wageningen University and Research has been working together with Schut Paper on upcycling such greenhouse residuals into fiber enriched paper and cardboard. The subtle presence of added fibers raises the visual value of their paper and cardboard-brand Valorise. Residual biomass can replace cellulose from wood up till one-sixth of the paper and cardboard. Such innovative circular practices help this small-sized paper company to differentiate and survive.
