Paper products manufacturer Georgia-Pacific has opened a processing unit to recover fiber from particularly contaminated streams that would otherwise be landfilled.

Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia-Pacific (GP) finished construction of the Juno technology unit at the company’s Toledo, Ore. plant in recent weeks.

First announced in 2018, the Juno process extracts fiber from soiled and otherwise contaminated streams, such as paper napkins, cups, plates and wrappers from restaurants and other public gathering spots. The process involves using heat, pressure and screening techniques to separate the fiber from food waste, plastic linings, metals or other contaminants.

In Toledo, GP will use the fiber, along with fiber from OCC, in linerboard used to make cardboard boxes.

“It’s a new-to-the-world waste recycling technology that can recycle and divert up to 90% of what goes to landfills today,” Christer Henriksson, president of Juno, told Resource Recycling.
