Raw materials for pulp and paper include cellulose fibres and other plant materials. Some synthetic materials can be used to give the finished product a special quality.
Paper is made from wood fibres, but cloth, flax, cotton linter, and sugar cane (sugar cane residue) are also used in some papers. Used paper is also recycled, and after refining and bleaching, it is often mixed with virgin fibres and reformulated into paper.
Products made from cellulose such as cellulose acetate, rayon and cellulose esters are used in films and explosive packaging. By type, the paper and pulp market can be divided into paper manufacturing, paper chemical manufacturing, and paper and pulp machinery manufacturing.
