Domtar has confirmed that it’s Kingsport Mill recently produced its first reel of 100% recycled containerboard. The milestone marks the culmination of a two-year, $350m investment project to convert the former uncoated freesheet paper mill into Domtar’s first 100% recycled containerboard facility.
“This is a monumental day for Domtar that marks our official entry into the containerboard market,” said Steve Henry, Executive VP and Chief Operating Officer, Domtar. “I am proud of the packaging, mill and extended Domtar team for their hard work and commitment. We are also grateful to our community for their support throughout the project.”
