How is Scott® 1000, Scott® ComfortPlus, Scott® Rapid Dissolving and Scott® Towels Manufactured? How is tissue made?
What are paper towels made from?
At the manufacturing mills, bales of pulp are fed into a machine called a "hydrapulper," which resembles a giant electric blender. The hydrapulper, using giant rotating blades, separates the individual fibers in the pulp. Water is then added to form a mixture called "stock."
Additional water is then added to the stock to make a dilute mixture, which is more than 99 percent water. The cellulose fibers in the water are then thoroughly separated in refiners before entering the process known as "forming." During the high-speed forming process, the fibers are molded into a sheet in less than a fraction of a second.
The next process is drying. A continuous mesh belt (resembling a window screen) carries the sheet from the forming section to the drying section. In the drying section, the sheet passes around a large honeycomb cylinder where hot air is forced through the fibers to dry the sheet. In just a few seconds the sheet travels the entire length of the paper machine (which is the size of a football field) and is dried to 95 percent fiber and only 5 percent water. The sheet is then wound into large rolls, called "parent rolls," which can be more than 50,000 feet long.
In the final process of the manufacturing process, known as "converting," the parent rolls are made into the SCOTT® toilet paper or paper towel rolls that consumers use every day in their homes. In the first stage of converting, the large rolls are placed on a machine called a "rewinder," where they are wound into smaller diameter rolls, called "logs." These logs are perforated to create individual sheets, then cut into appropriate lengths to create individual rolls.
Finally, the rolls go through a packaging process where they are wrapped and inserted into boxes, so they can be shipped to retailers. For an infographic, please click here https://www.kimberly-clark.com/-/media/kimberly/pdf/ingredients/how-tissues-are-made.pdf?la=en

While the paper industry uses a lot of water in the manufacturing process, the majority of that water is recycled. Water not reused is treated to remove contaminants prior to discharge. Careful controls and monitoring ensure that the water leaving the mill meets or exceeds water quality standards.
Throughout the manufacturing process, Kimberly-Clark continuously looks for ways to reduce the amount of natural resources and energy used per unit of production. Each of the company's mills in the United States has energy conservation programs and receives technical support and advice from the corporate energy staff. Kimberly-Clark is also committed to the reduction of waste going to the landfill. Active waste reduction and recycling efforts are in place at each mill. Some mills have virtually eliminated all waste to landfills.
