The following is a summary of the paper manufacturing process:

  • Waste paper is brought to the factory from all over Kenya and fed to a pulper machine.
  • It is then transformed into pulp at the pulper machine.
  • From here the pulp goes through a series of cleaning processes in various machines to remove impurities and particles.
  • It then passes through refiners where chemicals are added to give the end paper strong bond for its strength and quality.
  • After this it is passed on to the paper machine which forms it into sheets.
  • Finally it is dried with steam and the paper is rolled on to reels.
