Because newsprint is the most important and most expensive raw material for every newspaper, reducing unnecessary newsprint costs is essential to newspapers’ profitability. Remarkable amounts of paper used for newspaper production never turn into saleable copies.

With elevated newsprint prices and greater demands on production efficiency, the question of how to control newsprint waste has become increasingly important.
