Wastewater Pre-Treatment Facility Will Help Reduce Fox River Fiber’s Carbon Footprint
DE PERE, Wis. – Fox River Fiber, a leading supplier of high-quality, recycled pulp for environmentally conscious companies, is investing $7 million in a wastewater pre-treatment facility designed to reduce the company’s carbon footprint and keep costs stable for its customers.
“Using anaerobic technology, we will be able to send cleaner wastewater through to the Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District,” said Greg Archambault, Fox River Fiber’s chief executive officer. “It will reduce the amount of energy needed to treat our effluent, and it is a more sustainable method for the long term.”
Fox River Fiber is dedicating an acre of property to construct a large treatment tower and three storage tanks. The system is designed to handle approximately 1 million gallons of wastewater per day, up to a peak of 1.2 million gallons per day.
One of the tanks will pre-condition wastewater before it goes into the treatment tower; another will remove the biological solids and store them; and the third will further condition the water to remove any additional impurities before it is released to the Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District.
“We chose the anaerobic process as being the most environmentally friendly option,” Archambault said. “We will be able to reduce the organic component of our wastewater by 70 to 90 percent.”
The company broke ground on the project in June and expects to bring it on line in December.

DE PERE, Wis. – Fox River Fiber, a leader in supplying high quality recycled pulp to the paper industry, has introduced a silicone release liner recycling process that eliminates the costs associated with landfilling the carrier material.
Fox River Fiber’s process removes the silicone from spent release liner and recovers the fiber. The result is a cost-neutral transaction for packaging companies, with the potential to develop a profit center for larger volumes.
“Label release liners contain very good, high-quality fiber,” explains Ted Heimerman, Business Manager at Fox River Fiber. “Most companies are committed to improving the sustainability of their waste streams. Currently, manufacturers are paying to landfill the spent release liner. Our recycling process offers an opportunity to extend the life cycle of the fiber.”
The recaptured fiber is appropriate for use in items ranging from food grade packaging to printing & writing papers.
Silicone liner recycling is the latest in Fox River Fiber’s environmentally progressive technologies. The company is an industry leader in the de-inking of post-consumer wastepaper and turning it into high-quality pulp. It is one of the nation’s only suppliers of FDA-grade recycled pulp.
