Neenah Paper Makes History...Channel, That Is

Neenah Paper will appear tonight, January 24, on the History Channel’s Modern Marvels program during the “Environmental Tech” episode which focuses on recycling. Neenah’s application of sustainable technology at it Neenah, Wisconsin (USA), mill will be featured during the program.

“Neenah Paper recognizes that our industry is one of the most resource-intensive in the world. The manufacturing of paper consumes more water per ton of product than any other manufacturing process,” says Meredith Christiansen, product manager. “Therefore, it’s important as a leading fine paper mill to promote the technological advancements that allow us to recycle the water used in making recycled papers, return 70% of the water to the Fox River cleaner than when it left, and to decrease our dependence on fossil fuels.”
