Abstract: Despite the introduction of intelligent technology, paper continues to be consumed in large quantities for work and education. This thesis focuses on the study of paper usage in schools in Singapore and the issue of sustainability. As educators, schools and tertiary institutions have the unique opportunity to impress students the importance of environmental protection, sustainability and conservation. Other than encouraging the students to use both sides of the paper or to dispose the used paper into the recycling bins, there is huge potential to consider how paper can be recycled by a process that not only inculcates the habit of recycling among the students but also generates additional resources for the schools. Through investigations, such as study into the paper usage quantity and situations in the local schools as well as the paper making and recycling technologies and methods, this thesis aims to develop a more fitting educational and sustainable waste paper recycling system design proposal for local schools in Singapore.
