Building work starts on Essity's £30m wastepaper recycling plant in Northumberland, UK [From the web]
PRUDHOE, UK , January 19, 2023-
A £30m wastepaper recycling plant is taking shape in Northumberland after major employer Essity was granted permission for the scheme.
Cushelle toilet roll maker Essity, at Prudhoe Mill, has been keen to cut its dependence on virgin wood fibre, which it uses to make its products, including tissues, sanitary products and nappies, following a dramatic drop in waste paper supplies. The company submitted plans for a plant that will become one of the UK’s most advanced wastepaper recycling plants, replacing its existing 50-year-old facility.
