Recognized for its sustainability efforts at its Prewitt, NM, mill, Mexico-based Bio-PAPPEL's efforts at its other mills are no less praiseworthy. Built in 2000, the Tizayuca mill just south of Mexico City produces 220,000 tons/yr of liner and medium (from a 100% recycled furnish, most of which is recovered from the Mexico City area). The mill takes in about 240,000 tons/yr of secondary fiber, mostly OCC. One of the most striking features of the mill is its evaporation system. The treated water from the evaporation system is used mainly for paper machine showers and to refresh the white water. Most of the mill's production stays in house, going to one of Bio-PAPPEL converting plants. About 85% is converted by the company, the other 15% is sold. This is about the same split for the company's other board mills. With one of the world's largest cities on its door-step, the Mexico City region is the mill's largest market.
