Nakabayashi, a Japanese manufacturer of bookbinding services, paper/office products, and environmentally-friendly products has introduced a machine that turns office waste into toilet paper… on the spot.
The production rate is about two rolls per hour. Each roll requires about 900 sheets of A4-sized paper. Distribution of the 1,300 pound, $95K machine is set to commence in August with a sales goal of 60 units the first year.
Clearly, given the energy to create such a machine, this is not an efficient use of resources, but the concept may have merit as it is refined.
