The two mills in our operations network that do handle recycled newsprint (one in Thorold, Ontario and the other in Mokpo, South Korea) are both located near urban areas that have more readily accessible supplies of recovered paper.
Resolute is also the largest producer of recycled bleached kraft pulp (RBK), operating two 100% recycled pulp mills located in Fairmont (West Virginia) and Menominee (Michigan).
For our mills located in more remote areas, we’ve adopted different sustainability practices like using wood chips from nearby sawmills to produce newsprint. That way we’re making efficient use of this readily available local by-product of stud and dimension lumber production.
