It has a key role in the Country's economy by supplying paper and packaging to local businesses in textiles, food and drinks, and other sectors.
NowaEco produces its products from waste paper, helping to protect the environment. We process about 10,000 tons of wastepaper a year. If not for NowaEco, this waste would be incinerated or go to a landfill. Instead, it is collected and turned into paper packaging, and this packaging when used, in its turn, can be collected again for recycling

NowaEco has set up a modern testing laboratory to enable it to measure and monitor quality continuously. Quality is a No 1 priority to ensure that all product deliveries to customers perform well and to high strength specifications.
NowaEco's social responsibility is evident not only in being one of the largest taxpayers in the country, but also through its commitment to education, its close work with the UNDP and above all, its passion for delivering quality products.
