Environmental Benefits:

The project keeps solid waste out of the mill's on-site landfill, approximately 22,000 cubic yards per year. The recycling efforts of the Cass County Resource Recovery Facility reduce solid waste at the regional landfill. Air quality increases by providing the mill with a cleaner burning, renewable fuel source. Burning fiber-based fuels when compared with fossil fuels results in air emission reductions of 21 percent sulfur dioxide, 10-20 percent carbon monoxide, and 67.7 percent nitrogen oxide.
