Re: Paper pulping operation



Many of the mills in Michigan have been exploring the other uses of paper sludge.  Some have looked at using it for products such as molded counter tops and others have explored using it in refined forms such as for land application or one company is making potting soil.  The same company is also looking at the feasiblity to mix it with leafs to make a usable mulch.  Call National Council of the Paper Industry for Air and Stream Improvement (NCASI) for further information or studies.
