There are several types of waste coming from our integrated paper mills, and The Navigator Company strives to reduce and/or recover it in the best possible way every year.
In general, The Navigator Company produces 107 kg of waste/ton of product (pulp + paper). Most of the waste is recovered (82% in 2013) in order to produce energy, to be recycled, or to be used in agricultural applications and composting. This allows The Navigator Company to reduce resource consumption and environmental impact, and to manage costs efficiently.
The most important part of that waste is organic matter into water (4.4 kg of waste per ton of paper produced). Hazardous waste counts only for 0.2% of the total waste per year and is sent for recovery, regeneration, or elimination.
