Twin Rivers Odor Reduction Project Ahead of Schedule and Showing Positive Results

Edmundston, NB (July 30, 2014) – Twin Rivers Paper Company is pleased to announce its new technology is in place and is showing improvements in odor reduction at the pulp mill in Edmundston.

“Since the completion of our best practice review on technology in similar pulp mills we focused our efforts on completing this project by end of summer,” says Tim Lowe, CEO, Twin Rivers Paper Company.  “It’s been in place for just under two weeks and we are getting positive feedback that it is working.”

The new system was commissioned on July 10 with a gradual start-up and calibration process of the new technology.

“We are thrilled to see that already, the odor reduction project of Twin Rivers is showing good results,” says Edmundston Mayor Cyrille Simard. “It’s hard to evaluate the impact of odor reduction on our community, but I would wager our City will never be the same again and that we’re writing a new page in our history. We are truly grateful that the Twin Rivers team made this long-awaited issue a priority.” The new system is a welcomed addition to the company and Twin Rivers is pleased it is up and running over a month ahead of schedule.

“We are still fine tuning and learning how to best operate the new system but we are very pleased with the results,” says Lowe. “We are invested in our community and we are proud to make an investment in a project of such importance to the people who live and work here every day.”

Twin Rivers has been a vital economic engine for the region for over 80 years, producing a wide range of specialty paper and lumber products.
