PENSACOLA, FL | International Paper has begun production of high-performance lightweight linerboard at its Pensacola, FL, mill. Start-up of the project allows IP to produce linerboard grades with greater strength characteristics while using less wood fiber. IP expects to ramp up machine production during the fourth quarter and estimates average production of 50% to 60% of the machine's capacity for that period.
The product line provides the dual benefits of premium performance and sustainability. The line is sourced with 100 percent virgin wood fiber. It is fully recyclable and recoverable and allows customers to reduce their overall volume of packaging. See internationalpaper.com.
