No Wood-Pulp
In order to produce a metric ton of traditional wood pulp papers, an average of four metric tons of wood chips is utilized, which is the equivalent of felling approximately 23 large trees. Even so, this is merely the start of a long list of environmental costs of using traditional wood pulp paper.

Of the trees harvested globally for industrial uses, nearly half goes to pulp and paper production and, the demand for wood pulp remains insatiable. In light of the continuing trends, it has been estimated that only 5% of all tropical forests will remain by mid-century to the detriment of biodiversity. Even at the present, less than 20% of the world's original forest cover remains intact, and much of what does remain is already threatened by commercial logging.

Although about 30% of the world's wood pulp supply now comes from tree farms, by and large forest-harvested timber still dominates supply. In truth, even if artificial tree plantations have taken some pressure off deforestation, tree farms host about 90% fewer animal species than the natural forests that preceded them. Indeed, 1/3 of the world's biodiversity has been irrevocably lost since 1970.

That the continual reliance on traditional wood pulp papers is environmentally unsustainable is not news. Clearly, the environment needs our help and Lung Meng has and will continue to take proactive steps to ensure environmental protection by continuing to produce eco-friendly paper.

Lung Meng Technology has invented new papermaking principles, producing a family of paper products which are pulp-free. Harvesting trees to make paper is therefore, no longer, the only option.

Lung Meng's new invention will relax the pressures to fell trees, an invention which will escort us all to a brighter future!
No Water Pollution
A key motivation to the design of LM's ingenious waterless papermaking technology comes from the passion LM has towards protecting the environment. Unlike traditional papermaking methods, LM's papermaking methods does not require copious amounts of precious water to rid of the acid, alkali and bleaching agents which are used extensively in traditional paper manufacturing process. By taking measures to not involve water in the papermaking process, LM has taken a significant step in its mission to be Eco-Friendly.
No Air Pollution
LM's papermaking processes does not emit toxic gas. As prevention is better than solution, designing a production process to prevent discharge of toxic gas in the first place is clearly the more efficient and effective method than having to manage the toxic gas later. We should not be denied of quality air, LM not only understand but has also taken active steps to ensure toxic gas are not emitted by its papermaking technology.

Easily Recycled
LM Paper Products can be recycled by converting used stone paper into stone paper pellets. The stone paper pellets can then be used in the production of new stone paper or be used in other reycled plastic applications. In contrast, traditional methods of recycling pulp-paper is a complex process which requires water for further bleaching processes resulting in waste water which needs to be treated. The simplicity in recycling LM Paper Products reduces resource wastage.

LM's Paper Products are photodegradable. Experimentations on a LM Paper sample with a thickness of 200μm showed the paper began to photodegrade and crack like an egg shell when exposed to direct sunlight for approximately 6 months.

LM Paper Products will not photodegrade in your home when kept indoors and away from sunlight. Perhaps you might be concerned, what if you require the paper for outdoor usage? This has certainly been taken care of, the speed of photodegradability can be controlled via adding UV blocking agents.
A photodegradable paper can let us enjoy both an extraordinary product without having to worry about trash management. Attaining the correct balance to control the speed of photodegradability is vital, the good news is, with today's technology we can let us attain just that!
