Domtar Sustainability: Managing Our Byproducts

Blog

Our manufacturing processes generate byproducts that were historically viewed as “waste” and sent to landfills. We are increasingly monetizing the value in these byproducts and envision a future with virtually zero waste going to landfills. The benefits are both environmental and economic.

Our first step is to not generate “waste” to begin with. Through our continuous improvement initiatives and engineering innovations, we are turning more of the materials we handle into saleable products. '

Domtar Sustainability: Simple Idea. Big Savings

How do you heat more with less? Reuse the heat you have.

That is what our Rothschild, Wisconsin, mill did by installing a heat exchanger to warm incoming process water with outgoing process water. The idea is simple. Instead of being lost to the wastewater treatment plant, some of the heat from the outgoing water is captured and sent back into the mill.

THE HEAT EXCHANGER HAS REDUCED THE MILL’S STEAM DEMAND BY A WHOPPING 10 PERCENT DURING THE WINTER MONTHS.

We provide our employees pathways for professional growth and offer them resources to expand and enhance their skills, knowledge and management capabilities.

Domtar uses water for more than making paper. In our mill in Johnsonburg, Pennsylvania, we also hatch and rear fish—thousands of brook, brown and rainbow trout every year.

About 25-30 volunteers feed the fish twice a day and keep an eye on their health. Some are current mill employees; others are retirees who enjoy coming back to lend a hand.

When the trout reach an appropriate size, they are released into area streams. About 10,000 are released each year.

Domtar Sustainability: How Work Actually Gets Done

Blog

To make our facilities safer, we must understand how our employees actually do their work, not just how our written procedures state they should do their work.

Rather than treating our procedures as gospel, Domtar is using a new approach to understanding how specific tasks actually get done to ensure our employees can work safely. By asking employees to “show me” the way they complete certain tasks, we can see where our procedures, and sometimes our equipment, need to be adjusted to make our facilities safer.
