Greenfield Recycled Mills of the Future
Designing and building sustainable mills is critical to the future of the paper industry. The MMT team has designed and operated the most efficient mills in the US. These industry leading mills consume much less steam, water and electricity per ton when compared to the majority of paper mills in the world.
The process design is only one part of building a sustainable mill, MiniMills are strategically placed to take advantage of raw materials and close proximity to the end user. The primary raw material for MiniMills is recycled goods such as Old Corrugate Containers or mixed office waste. The source of recycled goods is densely populated regions which collectively they are referred to as the Urban Frrest.
Placing MiniMills in close proximity to the source of raw material and end user allows for freight optimization reducing the mills overall carbon foot print.
