NORPAC expands use of recovered paper

North Pacific Paper Co. (NORPAC), Longview, Washington, is expanding its Longview operations to transform recovered paper into 100 percent recycled papers for boxes, displays, bags and a variety of other packaging products.

According to a news release from NORPAC, the expansion will help solve a difficult environmental challenge resulting from changes in the state's ability to export recovered paper for recycling, which has sent tons of valuable material to landfills instead. Converting that material to new paper will also safeguard about 400 jobs at the mill.
