As good as Nucast: Redefining the paper route


Paper. A thin, versatile material with many uses, ranging from communication to construction. But almost 4 billion trees are cut down each year for paper alone. What’s more, its largest carbon emission comes from the production stage, which accounts for 44-67% of the entire paper life cycle. While this product is one of the most recycled products in the world, there is still much left in its processes to be desired.

This is why Altum uses Nucast, a reengineered paper composite that is lightweight, recyclable, and environment-friendly. Its textured finish mimics natural formations without the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced from traditional stone and metal.


Nucast has been used as construction material, home decor, and even souvenir in shows and hotels like Two Seasons. And to this date, Altum has upcycled 1.08 tons of paper since 2014. That's more than four hundred reams of bond paper. There’s still a long way to go, but we continue to redefine the paper route all the same.
