How to Exceed Your 5-year Emissions Goal One Year Early

For several years, Sappi North America has had a major focus on the reduction of fossil fuels and the emissions associated with combustion.
Article

Intensity is a term that describes the usage of resources for, or output from, the manufacture of a set unit of product. We exceeded an aggressive five-year goal of a 40 percent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity in just three years and are now working to reduce energy intensity. Overall, our performance in 2014 against these key emissions metrics was in line with 2013. A markedly colder winter impacted fuel consumption, slightly increasing our sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions, but we remain significantly below the industry average as reported by AF&PA.

Curbing Environmental Concerns

Climate change and greenhouse gas emissions remain top of mind for many stakeholder groups.
Article

In fact, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) identified climate change as the most common issue of materiality across all industries. Their research found that climate change is material in 50 of the 57 industries for which they have issued standards to date. The wood products industry is no exception.

Beyond environmental concerns, energy is a major cost driver in our industry, and excessive energy costs have been cited as a major factor in the recent closure of several US pulp and paper mills.

Knoxking Out NOx Emissions

Caterpillar's SoLoNOx System uses lean-burn technologies to reduce NOx emissions
Article

The SoLoNOx system uses lean-burn technologies to reduce NOx emissions. SoLoNOx turbine systems convert fossil fuels into useful work or electricity. By improving combustion technology, Solar is able to do this with a much smaller impact on the environment in the form of NOx emissions and without the need for additional exhaust gas control measures. The SoLoNOx system has been installed on more than 3,000 turbines, and most of Solar’s current engine models can be equipped with the improved system.
