Environmentally sensitive

Flambeau River Papers operates three paper machines, an integrated sulfite pulp mill, and an integrated de-inking facility where waste paper is recycled and printing ink and impurities are removed. Cost-efficient sulfite pulp fiber and de-ink fiber are used in production of new uncoated paper.

Recycled content promotes conservation and eliminates waste. The products are chlorine-free because chlorine and its derivatives are harmful to the environment – particularly to aquatic life.

The mill uses timber harvested from forests that meet environmental standards. Nearly 100% of the wood used in the pulp mill meets the Sustainable Forest Initiative standard and guidelines, ensuring that its products are made from responsibly managed forests. The 25% of paper production sourced from forests meeting the Forest Stewardship Council’s social and environmental standards is also FSC chain-of-custody-certified wood.
