Cutting the losses after Yasi

Postby Angela Helleren » Fri Feb 04, 2011 6:17 pm

Yasi left so much destruction and the loss of income from the banana and sugar crops will have a deep impact on both the local and national economy.
It will take some creative thinking to minimize the losses. I had heard of banana leaf paper sometime ago ....perhaps the Qld banana croppers already supply to the paper industry??? Anyone know???

Ok, searching a little further I found this but it's an old listing...

http://www.transformaustralia.com.au/paper.htm

The WORLD FIRST totally environmentally friendly paper factory will soon begin in banana growing regions of North Queensland, Australia, using solar and wind energy.
Banana paper, or FIBRE, is 300x stronger than pulped paper
It is made using what is currently a WASTE PRODUCT
It is water resistant and greaseproof, yet totally bio-degradable
It uses NO additives: NO chemicals, glues or dyes in production
No water is used, as the tree contains enough of its own sap to re-bond together
It can replace 85% of the current world paper and packaging usage.
It is naturally fire resistant

Please note: Blank paper not available retail or wholesale until commercial factory is finished in late 2005.
