“If you compare the production that I saw today with the production that I offer, then it is radically different, because the waste paper is used here. And the waste paper is ready-made cellulose. In my work there are stages of obtaining this pulp, the technological line. And directly as it is already modified in paper of different density. In general, to this project, I came about a year and a half ago “, – says the young inventor Valentin Frechko.
