Paper & Packaging

As the third largest producer of paper and paperboard in the world, the Japanese paper industry is undergoing a vast transformation in recent years, as the need for traditional paper products is decreasing and the demand for high-technology materials like nanofiber is increasing at an enormous pace. Companies are also using their expertise in power generation from biomass materials to expand into the electricity sector.
