OfficeMax Recycled Paper Made with Wind Power

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Starting in 2005, OfficeMax is adding a new paper that is 100 percent post-consumer recycled content. The paper is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), and manufactured using power from the wind industry. Mohawk Color Copy 100-percent recycled paper is manufactured without the use of chlorine and chlorine compounds. It is manufactured by Mohawk Paper Mills, which is the only mill in the U.S. using wind energy to make paper. Mohawk Paper Mills buys approximately 4 million kWh of wind power from Community Energy for its Cohoes, New York plant. The purchase is equal to the output of one 1.5 MW wind turbine, and equivalent to 10 percent of Mohawk’s electricity use. The paper won’t initially be available in retail stores, but will be sold through contract orders.
