– Vertaris is discontinuing production of recycled-content printing and writing papers at its mill in France and will focus “mainly” on producing deinked pulp, reported EUWID-Paper on Dec. 5.
The company is currently under a six-month observation period after filling for insolvency in October. Two years ago, it had restarted a paper machine with a capacity of 70,000 tonnes per year.
The mill, which is located in Voreppe, near Grenoble in Isère, France, made 100% recycled premium white ream paper for office use, as well as 100% recycled pulp, according to its website. It also makes some green building insulation materials from cellulose wadding.
