Only one hardwood species in the world creates this pulp, and it’s a culmination of 2,500 specimens over 25 years of research and development, where we married our patented technology with centuries-old traditional tree breeding techniques.
Next, what sets Double A apart is our “Paper from KHAN-NA” philosophy – a revolutionary, supremely green approach to papermaking. We use the unused space between rice paddies to grow our specially cultivated Double A Paper-Tree.
This unique approach has revolutionized sustainable production/manufacturing, and catapulted us to leadership in the industry. From our farming to our water and waste management, we’re working to keep our carbon footprint as small as possible.
In Thailand alone we have about 200 million Double A Paper-Tree, all planted in the unused crevices of rice paddies, called KHAN-NA. These trees take only 3-5 years to mature. They are uniform and straight-trunked for consistent growth, have no taproot, and regenerate for a few cycles after planting, so they’re easy for farmers to maintain. With very few, thin leaves, Double A Paper-Tree do provide farmers much needed shade, but also allow sunshine to reach the rice crops without piling up harmful, decomposing leaves.
