Green Paper Product Debuts

Abitibi-Consolidated Inc., a producer of newsprint and commercial printing papers as well as a major supplier of wood products, launched an environmentally friendly and cost-effective paper product last week.

The Montreal company said Innovative Offset delivers up to 20 percent savings through a lighter basis weight that provides stiffness and print quality. Innovative Offset also is chlorine free and requires 50 percent less wood fiber than commodity offset, the company said.

Produced at the Beaupre and Alma mills in Quebec, Innovative Offset delivers a brightness level of 81 and a whiteness of 90 and is surface-treated to ensure better ink hold-out and on-press performance, the company said.
