A notebook paper made from recycled paper from the Israeli military is more durable and attractive, and has a longer shelf life, than paper made with synthetic fibers.
“Our paper has been made from the same kind of paper used in Israeli military surplus stores, and we have been able to make it into paper that is even more durable,” said Rashi Katz, the CEO of the Israeli company Bifid, which produces the paper.
“The paper is more pliable and more durable.”
The company has sold 1,000 bags of the recycled paper to Palestinian businesses, including a local bakery, in recent years.
Katz said the company’s products are not a substitute for traditional paper, which is often made from plastic.
“We use organic material, which does not require the use of chemicals and the use that is not environmentally friendly,” he said.
“We use it in the production of the paper.”
Bifid is the first company to produce recycled paper, and its products are being sold to local markets.
It plans to sell 1 million bags of recycled paper in 2017.
The company has been developing its products since 2015, Katz said.
The idea for the recycled materials came to Katz after the Palestinian Authority was in charge of the Palestinian territories in the late 1990s, Katz told The Associated Press by phone from his office in Jerusalem.
The Palestinian Authority, he said, was unwilling to accept the results of Israeli studies, which found the paper was harmful.
“They were unwilling to say that the paper used was not harmful,” he added.
Katz, who was born in the West Bank, became involved in the project after he witnessed the Palestinian protests.
According to the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research, nearly 3,000 Palestinians have died during the past year in clashes with Israeli security forces.
The number of Palestinians killed has increased by more than 100 percent since the end of last year.
Since the beginning of the year, Palestinians have been trying to create an alternative source of paper.
Palestinians have also been selling their own paper to Israel, but the process is often complicated and expensive.
Katz is hopeful that the Israeli army’s recycling program will open a new market for Palestinian paper.
In addition to the paper, Bifids products are also made from natural rubber and bamboo.
The rubber is a lightweight, flexible material that can be cut into lengths of up to five centimeters, and is used in many other products, such as packaging.
The bamboo is also used in building materials and is available in bulk quantities.
To make the recycled material, Katz says he first uses recycled materials to make a base material, then applies a synthetic adhesive, a resin, to the fibers.
He also applies a heat treatment, which melts the resin, then the adhesive, leaving a flexible plastic base.
He says that when the adhesive is dry, he is able to use it to create a protective layer on top of the material.
This is how Bifide’s recycled paper is packaged and shipped from the company in Israel.
For Bifides products, the company also uses reclaimed materials from the land it is based in.
For example, the recycled wood is used to make the insulation and the natural rubber is used for the material used in the adhesive.
Katz says the company is now selling recycled paper on a monthly basis.
He said the prices have not changed much, and they are still relatively affordable.
Bifids is also selling its recycled paper products in Israel, where it is known as Bifidel, according to the company website.
The paper is made from a combination of recycled materials, such a recycled wood and bamboo, and natural rubber.
