GLENS FALLS, NY, Nov. 16, 2016 (PostStar) -Finch Paper in December will conduct tests and market analysis of two new potential reuses of waste from the pulp-making process at the company’s Glens Falls mill.

"We don’t call it sludge internally. We call it 'paper residuals,'" said Derek Basile, the company’s vice president and chief financial officer.

The waste is a combination of short paper fibers and ash.

One potential is to reuse sludge as a component in nitrogen-rich fertilizer and soil enhancers.
