ENVIROFIL® PCC is a new, innovative recycling technology that allows papermakers to recover mineral pigments from deinking residue by converting these raw materials to ENVIROFIL® PCC. This new technology has the ability to substantially improve waste paper yield, mitigate solid waste disposal costs and reduce the environmental impact of the deinking process.  The process addresses important sustainability challenges that paper mill customers face.  Currently, up to as much as 50,000 tons of recovered pigments can be used in an SMI PCC Satellite plant producing ENVIROFIL® PCC in place of standard PCC.
