Fiber giant targets contaminated loads

Georgia-Pacific, one of the world’s largest paper-product manufacturers, is working to scale up a patented technology to recover material from food-soiled packaging.

Georgia-Pacific plans to launch a demonstration plant for its Juno technology at its Toledo, Ore. containerboard factory, near the city of Newport on the Oregon coast.

“This is a new, innovative process we’ve been working on for a while,” Julie Turner Davis, director of public affairs and communications for GP Packaging and Cellulose, told Resource Recycling. “We are excited that we are making good progress on it.”

The Juno technology isn’t focused on bales of residential mixed paper, for which there are constrained end markets after China decided to halt imports. Instead, the technology is aimed at difficult fiber streams, such as paper food packaging from commercial sources, including airports, fast food restaurants, stadiums, amusement parks and others, Davis said.
