China's recycling 'saves forests'

Date : 13th July 2007, Source : BBC Link to News Story

China's massive capacity to recycle waste-paper is preventing many forests around the world from being destroyed, a report has concluded. The nation's paper industry imported almost 20 million tonnes in 2006, primarily from the US, Europe and Japan, according to NGO Forest Trends. The group said about 60% of the fibre used in producing paper was recycled. But it warned that timber from illegal logging was probably still being used to meet the surge in demand.
