Despite the current sharp drop in containerboard demand, two North American producers, Interstate Resources and Norampac continue to study plans to position themselves for the next market upturn and what could be a possible shift to lightweight recycled containerboard.
Interstate Resources' United Corrstack plans to begin a new 33 MW biomass boiler at its Reading, PA, medium mill this fall. The additional power would eventually allow the company to install a new board machine that would be at least twice as large as its existing machine. (Pulp & Paper Week, April 3, 2009).

On the other hand, Norampac has been evaluating a new lightweight machine to replace its Red Rock, ON, kraft linerboard mill, where it ran two PMs, that closed more than two years ago and left a gap in the sixth largest North American integrated producer’s mill/box plant system.

The company is studying possible locations in the US and Canada including its existing Niagara Falls, NY corrugating medium mill complex.
