More Waste for the Environment - Wastepaper as a Resource

Paulina Banszerus, Pia Demary, Hannah Thillmann

project report

We succeeded in producing an insulating material from used paper using little energy and only equipment available to schools. We have developed a harmless fire resistance treatment. Furthermore, we are working on a new kind of fuel generation: The decomposition of used paper into hydrogen using an enyzme of a thermophile microorganism.
