Green Paper Producer Gets Even Greener through Data-Driven Initiative Powered by Kepware’s Communication Platform

Having recently celebrated its fiftieth anniversary, Cascades was involved with recycling well before recycling was in style. Cascades Tissue Group, a division of Cascades, employs over 2,200 people within seventeen manufacturing and converting facilities throughout the United States and Canada. Cascades owns and operates seventeen paper machines, nearly ninety converting lines, and eight integrated de-inking units. Its products (which include paper hand towels, bathroom tissue, facial tissue, paper napkins, perforated roll towels, wipers, and dispensers) are made entirely from recycled materials.

With a substantial focus on the environment and sustainable practices, Cascades constantly updates its Sustainable Development Plan to ensure progress towards relevant and measurable objectives. It is the only North American paper manufacturer with a team of experts dedicated exclusively to energy efficiencies.

"At Cascades, we are devoted to two driving principals. We want to make the best paper products possible for our customers, and we want to do so in the most environmentally conscious manner possible," said Benoit Lapensée, Engineer and MES Coordinator. "Cascades does not harvest any new trees. Our 100 percent recycled towel and tissue products are made primarily of post-consumer material, which allows us to divert valuable fiber from landfills and preserve the environment."
