  Cellulose fiber (paper) accounts for 34% of the weight of   materials sent to landfill in the United States. The paper   industry recently exceeded its goal of recovering and reusing 40%   of the fiber produced and has set a new goal of 50%. This high   recovery level presents both challenges and opportunities. It   requires using a much wider variety of materials, while improving   product performance and value. James River is meeting the   challenge with several projects now on-line. A new process for   using 100% waste paper to produce recycled paperboard for   packaging provides capability to independently process multiple   sources of recovered materials to remove contaminants without the   costs of a deinking system. These highly cleaned feedstocks are   delivered to a multilayer paper machine designed to get the   maximum performance from recovered fiber.
