Company Formed To Produce De-Siliconized Pulp

CHICAGO, IL | The formation of a new company, Cycle4Green, has been announced by Calvin Frost, Channeled Resources, and Petri Tani of Finland. The focus of the company will be to provide de-siliconized pulp to the virgin base paper industry, allowing it to be more sustainable.

The partners have joined forces to initiate a life cycle scheme in Europe that includes the collection of spent liner, repulping and removal of silicone, and the sale of the pulp to selected base paper manufacturers. This is said to be the first commercial operation of its type in the Western Hemisphere and will eliminate the carbon footprint of sending recyclable spent liners to the Asia-Pacific region for consumption.
