The broad implementation of renewable carbon into processes and materials is the major key to achieve this goal. In addition to efforts to increase energy efficiency and improve logistics, a main direction of development is to steer the efforts of future material-oriented research in the paper industry towards the development of 100 % bio-based paper products that can be recycled several times in the sense of a circular economy. Fortunately this is already true for the fibre fraction in paper. However, since industrialization, a wide range of chemical auxiliaries, coating materials and additives has developed to improve process capability and expand fields of application. Their function has become indispensable in today's paper technology and paper products.
