In 2013 our Somerset mill had a breakthrough in optimizing the lime kiln (see p.30) which resulted in less lime mud waste. In addition, reduced solid fuel rates led to less boiler ash being landfilled. Our mill in Cloquet, Minnesota, has developed a beneficial use program with the local agricultural extension program and provides boiler ash and lime mud as a soil amendment to local farmers. These materials help farmers raise the pH of soil, creating better growing conditions for certain crops. We continue exploring beneficial use opportunities to find better opportunities as alternatives to landfill.

For more information about the use of ash as a soil amendment, be sure to check out the video featured on our eQ microsite by clicking here.
