DE PERE, WI, Jan. 14, 2014 (Press Release) -Fox River Fiber has begun utilizing a $7 million wastewater pre-treatment facility designed to reduce the company's environmental impact from its pulp manufacturing operations.

The De Pere, Wisconsin-based company is a leader among pulp manufacturers in turning post consumer fiber into high-quality pulp for environmentally conscious companies.

The on-site anaerobic digesting system creates cleaner industrial wastewater prior to releasing it to the Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District. The company plans to sell the recovered biological solids to other anaerobic treatment facilities for use as seed in treatment towers.
