Paper is basically produced by amalgamation of fibres found in wood. There is an extensive process from which paper is manufactured. These fibres are basically vegetable fibres which are composed of cellulose. These fibres are held together by hydrogen bonding. Basically wood or plant cells have fibres bound together. In a process known as plumping these fibres are separated from each other and cellulose or hemicellulose are basically exposed in them. These fibres can be separated chemically or mechanically or with the combination of these two. After fibre processing or plumping comes the stage of chemical plumping. Papers made from chemical wood-based pulps are also known as wood free papers. Once chemical plumping is done then mechanical plumping is done where wood is fed to large steamers and chips are squeezed and fibreized between two steel chips. The logs are fed into grinders where they are pressed by rotating stones and fibreized.

A huge amount is needed to create a chemical plump therefore a chemical plump is way cheaper than a mechanical one. After the plumping process additives are added and then comes the drying process as water needs to be dried completely. Once the drying phase is over then the finishing process is done where the paper goes through the sizing process for its use in various places. In the end the paper is fed to reels if it is to be used for printing presses or cut in different sizes.

Paper is a product which is used in executing many tasks. It is a natural product which is made out of renewable and natural materials.  The materials that are used in manufacturing paper are: Recovered paper, wood pulp, wood chips and sometimes product from industrial crops. Pulp is the basic ingredient that is used to manufacture paper.  
Since 1984, the method of recycling has been growing gradually. At the present stage 50 percent of the waste fiber is recycled and used for making paper. This ratio of recycled paper is calculated, considering the paper recovered and used for recycling compared to the papers consumed. Paper was invented in the eastern civilization. It is considered that the use of paper was started around two thousand years ago in China and Korea. To receive more information on manufacturing of papers you can search on internet.
