Catalyst Paper Corp develops Carbon-Neutral Paper for Magazine Publishing

Catalyst Paper Corporation, a newsprint and specialty mechanical papers company, serves the publishing and commercial printing, is developing a carbon-neutral paper product for magazine publishing its Catalyst Cooled paper line, a carbon-neutral paper that the company launched in June of this year in cooperation with Rolling Stone magazine.

Top questions to ask about publishing papers

  • Which paper strategies can save volume costs of paper?
  • Which paper stocks are made bleach-free, using alternative energy?
  • How can online strategies be used to further reduce paper usage?

Catalyst Cooled paper is referred to as "manufactured carbon-neutral" because there are no net greenhouse gas emissions associated with manufacturing it. Catalyst reduces the emissions from the manufacturing process, and then offsets the remaining emissions through reforestation projects.

The company said that an added environmental benefit of the product line is that its precipitated calcium carbonate filler also helps sequester carbon in the paper itself.

Grays Harbor Paper Introduces 100% Post-Consumer Commercial Printing and Copy Paper

Grays Harbor Paper, manufacturer of uncoated freesheet for printing and copying, produces 100 percent post-consumer commercial printing and copy paper. Harbor 100 is manufactured using FSC-certified pulp that is made with high grade office waste, with no virgin fiber is used in its manufacture. At the mill, 100 percent renewable carbon-neutral energy uses biomass, and all industrial waste from its production is land applied on Grays Harbor property. Grays Harbor has also recently purchased new semi trucks that run on biodiesel to regionally transport Harbor 100.

International Paper's Ecotainer is Made with PLA

International Paper Company manufactures an Ecotainer, which uses modified Polylactic Acid (PLA) instead of polyethylene (PE). Ecotainer works similarly to PE products, but is made with fully renewable resources, has a lower environmental impact across its lifecycle, and is biodegradable through municipal composting at the end of its lifecycle.

Myllykoski NA Diverts Waste Paper to Produce 100% Recycled Coated Paper

Myllykoski North America improves manufacturing solid waste processes at its Alsip Mill. Alsip diverts waste paper from landfills to produce coated groundwood paper with up to 100 percent recycled content.
