Paper Company plans Utah Mill using all recycled fiber
A paper company is planning to build a mill in Utah to manufacture paper using only recycled fiber from materials like cardboard.
Crossroads Paper plans to construct a $320 million facility that it expects to be operational by early 2022. The facility is expected to be able to produce 1,000 tons (907 metric tons) of paper a day. The company aims to cut back on water use in additional to using only recycled materials.
Project developer Ron Sasine says: “The facility plans to use about 10% of the water that mills usually use to make paper. The company is looking at locations in the Salt Lake City area”, but a site for the mill has not yet been selected.
