Non-Wood Fiber Fuels Explosive Growth and Career Opportunities at Allnorth
Posted on 06.05.2019
Allnorth is helping companies around the world convert non-wood fibers into pulp and create sustainable and environmentally conscious consumer products.
Increasing pressure by consumers and new environmental regulations are requiring businesses to switch from plastic or foam packaging and single use items to products that are biodegradable. These changes are fueling unprecedented demand for new sources of fiber based products that are less harmful to the environment.
Allnorth partners with the global leader of the technology that turns agricultural residue into high quality, compostable cellulose pulp which has physical characteristics that are comparable to hardwood and superior to recycled fiber. Many products can be made from this new pulp such as packaging, molded products (cups, plates, trays and to-go-boxes), tissue and towels.
Not just environmental and regulatory conditions are driving the demand of these new products but also basic economics. Mills using this technology require only 30% of the capital investment of a conventional wood pulp mill and operate at half of the cost.
Allnorth is the leading engineering firm for the development of non-wood fiber mills and we have provided engineering services for the newest and most advanced wheat straw and bagasse pulping facilities in the world. The latest project is in eastern Washington and will be North America’s first tree-free pulp mill. We currently are working on numerous other projects in the United States and around the world.
To accommodate this growth, we need to fill a multitude of open positions. We are looking for professionals that want to join our team and immediately roll up their sleeves and jump into this exciting new industry. If you are looking for a rewarding career with long term growth opportunities, we want to hear from you.
