Taiwan Lung Meng turns stone into gold for global sustainability
Do you believe that paper can be made from stone? Taiwan Lung Meng Technology has successfully turned stone into gold by spending 17 years and investing NT$1.8 billion inthe research and developmentof Stone Paper that is not only eco-friendly, but also waterproof and burn-resistant. A ton of stone paper saves up to 20 trees, 7,480 gallons of water, and cuts carbon emissions in half. Compared with the traditional wood pulp paper, this Stone Paper is revolutionary andvery eco-friendly.
Stone paper is made through grinding marble tailings from Hualien into fine stone powder and adding a small number of eco-friendly plastics to manufacture paper that functions like wood pulp paper. Such a process uses inexhaustible stones instead of chopping down trees, and the technology is both the first in Taiwan and unrivaled globally as it has patents in 40 countries. These fine products are exported as far as Nigeria in Africa and Iran in the Middle East andeven the White House in the United States is a dedicated user! Its world’s first Waterproof Durable Stone Notebook Series won the 2020 Taiwan Excellence Gold Award and was designated by the Office of the President as a gift for guests attending the Presidential Inauguration on May 20. It is the best example of the green cultural and creative industry.
