If you are a manufacturer of paper products, you should know that a tremendous amount of waste occurs during the procurement and manufacturing processes. In the vast majority of instances, only the trunk of the trees are being used, while the leaves and the soft branches are being discarded.
Approximately two years ago, I filed a patent that would have changed the manufacturing process to include the leaves and the soft branches. Many companies throughout the world saw, or became aware of the patent application, and they amended their manufacturing processes without purchasing the patent. The result was a dramatic decline in the destruction of trees, an increase in the use of what otherwise would have been considered waste products, and a decrease in the cost of paper and paper products.
The new form of paper is not as appropriate for books or for other more durable uses. It is appropriate primarily for single-use paper bags and for wrapping paper. If you wish to create a more durable paper product that is derived from the leaves and the soft branches, and that is appropriate for longer term uses, the patent remains available. Every reasonable offer will be considered, including offers to license.
