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.
