Jan. 16, 2014 - Fox River Fiber announced that it 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 pulp manufacturer utilizes post consumer fiber as its primary raw material for making high-quality pulp.
