Millar Western high-yield pulps are an environmentally responsible choice:

  •  We use hydrogen peroxide as a bleaching agent, making our process totally chlorine free.
  •  We continuously enhance our processes to reduce our environmental footprint: in the past 15 years, we’ve cut our power consumption and GHG emissions by 40% and our water use by 20%.
  •  Our advanced environmental control technologies are reflected in an outstanding record of regulatory compliance.
  •  Our process yields up to twice as much pulp per tree as kraft methods and consumes less water.
  •  The fibre we use to make our pulp is legally sourced from forests managed with care.
  •  Softwood grades use spruce-pine-fir (SPF) wood chips generated as a byproduct of lumber production.
  • Hardwood grades are made from aspen, an abundant, fast-growing tree species.
  •  All fibre is:
    • harvested within 175 km of our mill from forests
    •  certified to the SFI sustainable forest management standard
    •  supplied under PEFC and Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) National Forest Stewardship Standard of Canada (FSC® C008999) chain-of-custody controlled wood programs
    • compliant with the European Timber Regulation and the U.S. Lacey Act.
