Narrator: You will hear two students discussing an assignment. First, you have some time to look at questions 21 to 25.

Alan: Hi, Melanie. What did you think of the assignment that we got today? It looks interesting, doesn’t it?

Melanie: Yes, Alan. I’ve always been interested in recycling, but there’s a lot of research to do.

Alan: Yes, there are a lot of things I’m unsure of, so it’s going to be good working with you.

Melanie: Okay. Well, why don’t we start by making a flow chart from the notes our tutor gave us?

Alan: Yes. Um, so, on one side, we could have the paper production cycle - here on the left, and on the other side the recycling.

Melanie: Good idea. Let’s start at the top with the production. The first step in the process is to get the raw materials.

Alan: Yes and they tend to come from pine forests.

Melanie: Okay. And then the bark is removed from the outside of the tree and after that, the wood is chopped up. That’s the first three stages.

Alan: It sounds a bit complicated after that. It says water is added, and then the mixture is heated and made into pulp. This will be the thick paste that is used to make paper.

Melanie: Yes, you’re right, because after that they use a machine to make the paper. And we can put that right in the center of the flow chart because it’s also where the recycled paper joins the process.

Alan: Yes, so once the paper has been produced in the machine, what happens then?

Melanie: Well, I think we should write print as the next step because this is when newspapers, magazines, etc are produced. And we could also add that they have to be distributed to stores and people’s homes.

Alan: Right. Then the recycling bit starts. The old papers collected and then it says it’s taken somewhere so that someone or something, can sort it. I imagine there are different kinds of paper or things like paper clips that need to be removed.

Melanie: Yes, let’s have a step after that. Now, how did our tutor say they do this? Oh, yes, it involves chemicals. So how is your chemistry?

Alan: Well, not very good, I’m afraid. But this is how they remove ink. So, this is definitely going to need a bit of research.

Melanie: Right. Uh, the last step in the recycling section is similar to the last step in the production process, with heating and pulping before the cycle begins again.
