First time exhibitor Mid America Paper Recycling (booth 221) plans to showcase the benefits of an industry-first waste audit report and explain recycling best practices at the TAPPI CorrExpo, October 14-16 at the Denver Convention Center. One of the largest independent brokers, processors and exporters of recovered paper in the Central United States, Chicago-based MAPR has deep roots in the printing industry dating back to when it was founded in 1926. As large commercial printers and paperboard converters search for new methods to improve their revenue sources, MAPR’s experience in the recycling process can likely help them. “I felt our decision to exhibit at TAPPI CorrExpo for the first time this year was a natural. We have been working with paper industry and corrugated users for years,” said Paul Pirkle, who joined Mid America Paper Recycling as president last year.
In keeping with our clear commitment to sustainability, Lecta operates according to the highest environmental standards, guaranteeing innovative, safe and responsible products, the result of environment-friendly, responsible manufacturing processes.
At a time of heightened awareness of the need to conserve natural resources and protect our planet, Lecta once again shares its success and progress in this area. This is the product of a long history of best practices, and significant investment in sustainable new technology and important environmental improvement projects at all our mills. In total, the company has invested more than 146 million euros over the last 10 years in this priority objective.
This effort and commitment is reflected in the environmental indicators contained in the Environmental Report, the majority of which derive from each mill’s environmental declaration verified by an independent body prior to publication. This is also reflected in the achievement of the goals and objectives set for this period, such as securing new food safety certifications, the recovery of nearly 100% of the sludge generated during the production process and the significant reduction in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, to mention just a few.
We continue to be deeply committed to minimizing our environmental impact. Lecta is committed to undertaking new challenges in this area over the next two years, objectives set out in this report, that will be reviewed in the next edition.
Lecta’s new Environmental Report is available in English, Spanish, French and Italian and can be downloaded in PDF format in the Sustainability section at www.lecta.com.
