The Difference between Virgin & Recycle Pulp


Virgin Pulp is a wood-based raw material and it is used to produce various paper-based products.


Virgin Pulp is produced by mechanically separating cellulose fibers from woods. It does not contain any recycled content and is made directly of the pulp of trees, is also considered to be a high-quality paper.



Recycled pulp is made of used paper which has been processed by chemicals, so the inks will be removed with other unwanted elements and abstracted the paper fibers. 


Recycled pulp is safe to use as a raw paper material. In the paper industry, products like the facial tissues, toilet tissues and carton boxes are usually contained 100% recycled pulp. 



The production of recycled pulp has more steps which are paper collection and recovery, pulping and deinking. The recycled pulp can only used for a limited time due to the recycling process shortened and weakened the fibers. 


So, we have to use virgin pulp in order to maintain the consistency supply of paper. The production of virgin pulp is simpler which consists of logging, debarking, chipping and milling process. The production of recycled pulp is considered more expensive than virgin pulp.
