Paper Engineering

The real life alchemists of the 21st century.

Paper Engineering is a particular field in materials engineering focussed with the transformation of raw lumber and bark into useful writing and packaging products. Paper is created by processing and bleaching wood pulp into thin sheets. The two most commonly produced products are paper (obviously) and cardboard. The recycling of paper is much more common approach to deal with the large waste generated by paper products. Paper engineers are actively involved in forest management schemes to ensure the natural balance of trees remains.
