West Coast ‘Green’ Mill Closes

Freshwater Tissue, California's last pulp mill and the only chlorine-free/dioxin-free mill in the USA, plans to permanently close. The mill has struggled since the mid 1990's to compete with foreign competition. The owners were planning on building a tissue mill as well. This west coast mill was a model of responsible and environmentally sound American manufacturing, but failed to attract both federal assistance nor private investors.
