Managing our solid waste and finding ways to minimize it remains a focus at all Sappi’s North American mills. Increased lime kiln capacity at the Cloquet Mill increased internal recycling of lime mud and decreased overall chemical consumption and waste to landfill. Higher use of natural gas at the Somerset Mill drove lower waste to landfill from ash generated during the combustion of biomass. At the same time, we continue to increase our beneficial use of solid waste program, which aids farmers by providing excess lime mud and boiler ash, amendments used to manage soil pH, improving growing conditions for certain crops.
