YORK, PA | Glatfelter, a leading global supplier of specialty papers and engineered products, has launched its first-ever “Interactive Mill Tour,” which is now available for viewing on the company's website. It is a guided “behind the scenes” tour demonstrating how renewable wood resources are used to make paper for books, stamps, envelopes, greeting cards, carbonless forms, and a wide range of other specialty products that people rely on every day.
The tour brings Glatfelter's Spring Grove, PA, and Chillicothe, OH, paper mills “to life” through illustrations and photography, informative video, and detailed animation. Viewers are led through these two fully integrated kraft pulp and paper mills on a 20-min journey that begins with a tree and ends with the finished paper product.
Viewers also learn how Glatfelter manages its environmental footprint by practicing sustainable forestry, making efficient use of biomass for fuels, utilizing green chemistry to help improve the efficiency of its pulp-bleaching process, and achieving chain-of-custody triple forestry certifications (FSC, SFI, PEFC) at both i ts North American facilities.
The video tour, also available on CD, can be viewed in its entirety or in shorter segments; said ideal for training and educational seminars. To take the Interactive Mill Tour, visit http://www.glatfelter.com/learning/interactive_tour.aspx, or e-mail MillTour@glatfelter.com to receive a CD-ROM.
