ND Paper To Convert (CONT’D FROM PAGE 1 )

Core Competency

total, will have capacity for over 800,000 short tons. The conversion will include construction of a new recy- cling facility paired with machine modifications. The new, state-of-the-art pulping facility will provide over 1,550 short tons per day of OCC pulp for paper operations. As the pri- mary raw material for the facility, OCC – post-use consum- er cardboard removed from the waste stream – is collect- ed and processed into a renewable fiber-based pulp. This pulp is used in the manufacture of sustainable, lightweight packaging papers. Construction will commence in the first quarter of 2022 with commissioning anticipated by the end of 2022. The OCC recycling plant project will help advance ND Paper’s commitment to sustainability by reducing energy use and removing landfill waste. Studies have shown that using one ton of recycled paper, in place of greater energy consuming resources, can save 380 gallons of oil, 7,000 gallons of water, 4,100 kilowatts of energy, 4.3 tons of C02, and more than 3 cubic yards of landfill space. These changes further support the strategic transfor- mation of the Biron Division and the Company. Over recent years, demand for packaging grades, such as kraft paper and linerboard, have experienced substantial growth due to a shift toward e-commerce and consumer demand for more sustainable products. Growth is expected to contin- ue in these markets into the future.
