Making of the Elephant Poo Paper

5. Pulping

After the fibre has been softened and sorted, it goes into the Hollander Beater, to be beaten to pulp. This process takes about 4 hours. The fibre goes through the process of being beaten into very fine pulp and also being washed again. Disinfectant is added here to kill any bacteria still in the pulp.
