New and converted recycling mills to come on line

New and converted recycling mills to come on line

By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling

Demand for recovered paper, especially in the Northeastern U.S., is rising due to the pending start-up of two new machines.

Norampac is aiming for a July opening of its new containerboard mill in Niagara Falls, New York. The $430 million, 250,000-square-foot plant will employ more than 100 in making up to 550,000 tons annually of paperboard.

And in Whitby, Ontario Atlantic Packaging is hopeful of beginning to operate a 300,000-ton-per-year lightweight paper machine in the next few weeks. The machine was originally used to make recycled newsprint but was idled in March 2010.
