Paper mill

Guided tour. If the alarm goes off, keep calm and stay with your group.
A paper mill is a place where trees are turned into paper.
Every time a tree is cut a new seed is planted to respect our forest.
The labourers carve wood in a big mill to obtain cellulose, which is the most importat raw material.
Once all the ingredients are ready the wood is mixed with water in a pulper and cooked into a paste.
The paste is flattened in a continuous machine until it is as thin as a sheet of paper and it gathers in big paper reels, ready to be cut into smaller sheets.
