Mill Environment

Our company is committed to ensuring our operation meets or exceeds all environmental standards. Protecting the environment is more than a responsibility, it is an integral part of the way we conduct business.

We are proud of our environmental record and continue to look for new and efficient ways to improve what we are doing. Our millsite operations carry three International Organization for Standardization (ISO) certifications which keep us in pace with quality, environmental and water quality standards set around the world. We are also certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) because of our ecological sustainable forestry practice.

Alberta-Pacific strives to divert material from our landfill site by finding innovative options. Bio-solids from the wastewater treatment system are used as fuel in the power boiler and for soil enhancement on agricultural land. Ash from the boilers is used for road and drill pad stabilization or land-spreading on poplar farms and local agricultural land. Lime sludge from water treatment can be used for liming of acidic soils.
