Domtar Corp. has achieved Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody certification at four more of its paper mills. Its coated groundwood mill in Columbus, Missouri, and uncoated freesheet mills in Hawesville, Ken., Kingsport, Tenn., and Marlboro (Bennettsville), S.C. are now FSC-certified.
The number of FSC-certified Domtar sites now exceeds 40, and includes 11 paper mills, three market pulp mills, 14 off-site converting operations, and regional replenishment centers located across North American. Chain-of-Custody certification is a rigorous tracking system that identifies the origin of fibre used in certified products under FSC.
“The addition of these four paper operations to our FSC-certified network will enable us to expand our Domtar EarthChoice line of environmentally and socially responsible paper products and bring us closer to our customers across North America,” said Lewis Fix, senior director, business development at Domtar.
Domtar manufactures uncoated freesheet paper and paper grade, fluff, and specialty pulp.
