After discussing conceptual problems with the conventional string model, we present a new approach, based on a theoretically consistent multiple scattering formalism. First results for strange particle production in proton-proton scattering at 158 GeV and 200 GeV centre-of-mass (cms) are discussed.This paper was presented at Strange Quark Matter Conference, Atlantic Beach, North Carolina, 12-17 March 2003.
