Cascades Invests $10 Million in Eco-Friendly Venture
Cascades Specialty Products broke ground this week on a $10 million investment at the Cascades East Angus mill.
The investment will be used to build a recycled pulp unit that will enable the production of kraft type recycled pulp.
A new building will be added to the premises to house a pulper, loading platforms and a warehouse for waste paper. This unit will be able to convert daily more than 200 tonnes of old corrugated cardboard (OCC) into recycled pulp. This integration will also enable Cascades to increase the recycled content of its kraft papers from 43 percent to 70 percent.
