Channeled Resources announces partnership for liner pulping

September 25, 2009

The project will involve removal of silicone from spent liner, repulping and shipment to base paper manufacturers.

Petri Tani of Finland has formed a new venture called Cycle4Green, a company with an innovative concept to produce de-siliconized market pulp. The focus of Cycle4Green will be to provide de-siliconized pulp to the virgin base paper industry, allowing it to become more sustainable. The announcement was made today at Labelexpo Europe by Calvin Frost, chairman of Channeled Resources Group.

Petri has joined forces with Frost to initiate a life cycle scheme in Europe that includes the collection of spent liner, repulping and removal of silicone, and then the sale of the pulp to selected base paper manufacturers.

This will be the first commercial operation of its type in the Eastern Hemisphere and will eliminate the carbon footprint of sending recyclable spent liners to the Asia-Pacific region for consumption. It will also allow virgin base paper manufacturers to become more sustainable by supporting the complete life cycle of paper liners. Tani and Frost will present their progress at the next Global AWA Release Liner Conference in Amsterdam in the spring of 2010.
