Pa­per from lime­stone startup be­ing funded

China Daily (USA) - - BUSINESS -

Ja­pan’s big­gest print­ing com­pany is fund­ing a startup that makes pa­per out of lime­stone, in a bid to di­ver­sify into new ma­te­ri­als as en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns push com­pa­nies to seek more sus­tain­able prod­ucts. Top­pan Print­ing Co said it would form an al­liance with TBM Co that could see posters, cat­a­logs and stick­ers man­u­fac­tured out of lime­stone, a plen­ti­ful ma­te­rial in other­wise re­sourcescarce Ja­pan. Their am­bi­tion is to cre­ate a busi­ness with rev­enue of 50 bil­lion yen ($444 mil­lion) by the end of the decade.
