Sappi ReFibre: following the principles of reduce, recover, re-use – and capacitate
Sappi ReFibre, Sappi Southern Africa’s secondary fibre division, sources used paper products from an extensive network of agents across the Southern African region as well as from waste producers.
Cross-functional, pro-active collaboration at Stanger Mill
COVID-19 led to the closure of borders, airports and trading ports. And this, in turn, led to the shutting down of almost all the supply chain channels for the sale of printing and writing paper, to a point where Stanger Mill was forced to take commercial downtime.

Climate change is here to stay and the search is on for sources of renewable energy. This is where the 25 MW Ngodwana Energy biomass power plant at Ngodwana Mill comes in.
In South Africa, we’re using our leveraging our novel Xylex technology – acquired in 2017 – to progress the extraction of sugars from woodfibre to produce xylitol and furfural.
Building communities through the power of sports
Sappi partners with the Abashintshi to make sports days come to life by sponsoring team prizes and trophies.
