FutureMark Decreases Impact on Paper Production
FutureMark Paper Company, the only North American manufacturer capable of producing up to 100 percent recycled coated paper for magazines and catalogs, announced two new initiatives to lower the environmental impact of paper production.
The company is now using an environmentally sustainable binding compound made from corn starch in its paper coatings instead of petroleum-based latex.
Furthermore, FutureMark has developed an innovative product that reuses the short paper fibers, inks and coating minerals extracted from recycled paper as a soil nutrient.
"Making recycled paper in an environmentally friendly way has long been a point of pride for FutureMark and our employees," said Steve Silver, President & CEO of FutureMark Paper Company. "With these two advancements, we're further reducing the environmental impact of our manufacturing processes, while returning nutrients to the earth and making incremental improvements to our very high-quality recycled paper."
