Its wood is made up of short fibres, meaning a higher number of fibres per weight unit. This allows to have a paper with an excellent porosity, high opacity and good formation. To sum it up: a premium quality paper with excellent runnability and fewer jams.
Exactly what you need, right?!
Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of using Eucalyptus Globulus for paper making.
Using the same raw materials every time helps to ensure the consistent high quality of our paper. Many other paper mills source their fibres from different suppliers or combine different types of fibres, which can compromise the consistency of the material produced.
Compared to most species of trees, including birch, pine, aspen, acacia and other types of Eucalyptus, the Eucalyptus Globulus tree provides much more pulp. This means that more paper can be produced from harvesting the same amount of wood as other species, making it more efficient and economical.
The Eucalyptus Globulus is generally known as a “hard worker” of the tree community. It is an evergreen tree, meaning it carries out photosynthesis and continues to grow all year round. The majority of bi-products from photosynthesis can be used to nourish the trunk of the tree, and the trunk grows more in both height and diameter compared to other trees.
The characteristics of the Eucalyptus Globulus lend to the high quality of the paper it produces. This is mainly because it has a higher number of fibres per unit of weight compared to other trees. This means the paper it produces has improved porosity, opacity and production, lending to an enhanced printing quality.
