Double A trees

. . . on our way to the Khao Yai national park.


Double A is a Thai company and brand that is currently available in more than 100 countries worldwide and recently started in the U.S.. According Double A their business also serves as a major economic benefit for the citizens of Thailand. The farmed trees are harvested by more than 1.5 million local farmers who receive training and stability amongst Thailand's agricultural crops that can cause seasonal labor migrations and income fluctuations. Double A uses pulp from farmed trees in Thailand, a sustainable and innovative harvesting method that reduces environmental impacts. Made from farmed Eucalyptus trees grown throughout agricultural communities in Thailand, Double A's pulp harvesting method significantly reduces environmental impacts while making a high-quality paper product. Planted alongside existing rice paddies, corn and other crops that would otherwise be unused, the paper from farmed trees does not require land clearing or the destruction of forests, avoiding impact to the environment. Additionally, the trees significantly diminish harmful greenhouse gases by reducing more than two million tons of CO2 emissions each year.

De conventionele pulp- en papierindustrie is volledig afhankelijk van bomen die meer dan 50 jaar oud zijn. En die bovendien gekapt worden in natuurlijke bossen.Bij Double A doen ze het anders. Zij gebruiken 3 tot 5 jaar oude bomen. Deze worden speciaal gekweekt in het geografisch en klimatologisch gunstig gelegen Thailand. En dankzij de expertise en jarenlange ervaring van Thaise boeren worden bomen geplant en gekapt zonder daarbij de natuurlijke bossen te vernietigen of te beschadigen. Op die manier behouden ze dus het ecologisch evenwicht. De bijzondere kwaliteit van Double A Paper is allereerst te danken aan een speciale eucalyptusboom. Deze snelgroeiende boom wordt gekweekt op hun eigen plantages in Thailand. Deze bomen worden vervolgens met minimaal water verbruik verwerkt in een van de meest moderne fabrieken van Azië. De capaciteit van de pulp (de eerste verwerking) fabriek is ruim 427.000 ton. Deze fabriek is overigens vrij te bezoeken op afspraak.
