Expert interview "Future with stone paper"

On Friday 19 March 2021, our online expert interview with Hunter Bliss from Pebble Printing Group took place on the topic of "The future with stone paper".

Stone paper is 80% calcium carbonate and 20% polyethylene in publishing applications such as books, and 60% calcium carbonate and 40% polyethylene in the paperboard version. It can generally be considered a substitute for regular wood paper. Compared to conventional wood paper, however, this substrate offers many advantages: it is resource-saving, tear-resistant, waterproof, has a high degree of whiteness and consumes about 70 % less Co2 in production than normal paper. If you want to learn more about this interesting substrate, you can watch the video recording of the interview here.

Have fun watching it!

Jour Fixe

The popular event series of the International Gutenberg Society in Mainz e.V. for members and interested parties invites to lectures. Speakers and experts from the printing and media world will contribute to the success of this series in a relaxed atmosphere free of charge. Afterwards each time a small wine tasting takes place. As a rule, the topic of the presentation and the winery will be announced separately in advance. Admission is free!

Since 2006, the Jour Fixe has offered all book and media enthusiasts the opportunity to expand their knowledge through a scientific lecture. Afterwards there is the opportunity to get to know like-minded people and to exchange ideas with them. The event was founded by Günther Lindner and Hartmut Flothmann as a lunch meeting in the Gutenberg Museum. Since the end of 2018, the Jour Fixe has been an evening event that takes place in the Kulturei (Citadel) and continues the goals of the founders.

If you yourself are active in the book and media industry and are interested in presenting your subject area to an interested audience, please contact us at our office.

The current dates and topics of the Jour Fixe can be found listed above.
