Sustainable and Responsible

The Phoenix Process is the prime example of environmentally conscious pulping methods in the paper industry. The process uses agricultural residue with no previous end-use and does not require destruction of trees and forests. The primary product is high-quality, compostable paper pulp. There is also a nutrient rich co-product, which can be recycled as fertilizer for the next crop. Mills are chlorine free, use no sulfur-based chemicals, and produce no liquid effluent.




Cradle to Cradle

The Phoenix Process utilizes agricultural residue left behind from the harvesting of wheat and other plant material. This previously unused material becomes high-quality pulp used in the production of tissue, toweling, packaging products, and compostable foodservice ware for the consumer. The Phoenix Process generates a nutrient-rich co-product, which is returned to the fields to enhance next year's crop, or even feed livestock.
