Green and insulating: Researchers develop sustainable fireproofing materials from waste paper

(Natural News) Swiss researchers found a hot new purpose for waste paper products. They developed a chemical process that can turn paper into a fireproof insulator. Their new method would reduce the need for insulation materials that depend on the availability of dwindling petroleum supplies. When it catches fire, wood eventually crumbles into ash. But the recycled paper fiber…
