A small group of businesses is spending over $430 million to construct a 100% recycled containerboard mill. The mill will be located in Niagara Falls, New York.
Cascades Inc., a packaging and tissue maker is teaming with a Canadian financial company, a packaging company called Jamestown Container and one other industry partner on this project.
This new venture will be called Greenpac Mill LLC and will manufacture recycled linerboard (the outer layer of cardboard boxes and corrugated containers). The facility intends to operate only a single machine, but that machine will be the biggest of its kind and produce over 500,000 tons each year, according to Cascades.
