Recycling

Sommerset Mill is now a leading producer of paper packaging that's a sustainable, renewable alternative to plastic.
With innovation and ingenuity, we're making our mills eco-effective—reducing waste, emissions and optimising material and resource use at every opportunity.
Surrounded by the scenic mountains and forests of Trentino in northern Italy, the over 130 employees at Condino Mill are especially conscious of their environment. Finding ways to become more eco-effective —reducing waste, emissions and maximising material and resource use — is a challenge they have embraced with enthusiasm and ingenuity.
At Sappi, we're cultivating more value and purpose from every tree. With recyclable woodfibre products, we're accelerating the transition to the circular bio-based economy our planet demands. 
While the basics of papermaking process has changed very little over the centuries, woodfibre only became the main raw material for mass paper production in the mid-19th century. The key advantage of using woodfibre is that it is a natural renewable resource.
Black liquor, a by-product of the pulping process is sometimes referred to as ‘black gold’ because of the high levels of energy it contains.
A sweet success
The recyclability of products has become just as important to consumers as quality and price. At the same time, consumers are also insisting on food packaging that’s safe.
There is a global movement to limit or eliminate solvent-based casting systems in order to reduce chemical waste and pollution.
The circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources.
In 2020, Sappi North America launched Verticals: Fashion Marketing, the second instalment of our educational series for marketers, ahead of New York Fashion Week.
