The Blue Economy cites a new business model in China
where novel paper production turns crushed rocks, including
mining waste that has piled up over centuries into sheets
for printing, writing and packaging without the use of water, without
cutting down a tree, and recyclable forever. It details how thistles,
considered a weed, is turned into a plastic, a lubricant and a herbicide
converting an old petrochemical plant into a biorefinery.
