3. Is heat required to make Zeoform pulp into products?

Zeoform can be processed from raw (dry or wet) pulp into hard objects under ‘room-temperature’ conditions, including a drying cabinet at approx. 80ºC. During the evaporation process, a combination of physical and chemical reactions (fibre entanglement and hydroxyl bonding) occurs to enmesh cellulose fibres into a dense, uniform material. Zeoform can be compression moulded, sheet-pressed and formed under pressure at a temperature of 180ºC.

Note: The mechanical milling of Zeoform generates waste heat that may be captured, stored and used for further production. (And, of course, there are many ways to generate heat without burning fossil fuels, for example solar, wind, water turbines and other sources.)
