Have you ever thought about what happens to toilet paper after you flush it? Probably not. The material dissolves partly, but the organic material from the paper remains in the sewage water. One of the raw materials of paper and cardboard is cellulose, a natural substance. This cellulose can be recovered and reused. This project works on more effective and sustainable methods to reprocess cellulose and reuse it as a raw material.
