NewYield(TM) Integrated Process Technology Generates Savings for Papermakers by
Eliminating the Need to Landfill the Waste Product
NEW YORK, NY, August 6, 2014-Minerals Technologies Inc. (NYSE: MTX) announced
today that it has introduced NewYield(TM) Integrated Process Technology, a
breakthrough technology that converts a paper and pulp mill waste stream into a
functional pigment for filling paper. NewYield(TM) process technology eliminates
the cost of environmental disposal and remediation of certain waste streams to
"We are very pleased to introduce this new process technology platform that will
help papermakers lower costs and reduce their impact on the environment," said
Joseph C. Muscari, chairman and chief executive officer. "We believe that
initially, the primary region for use of this new process technology will be in
China, where there is a concerted effort to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
This technology gives papermakers the ability to solve a waste disposal issue,
while at the same time, provides them with a useable filler product in return.
MTI and the papermaker will both benefit, as will the environment."
The specific waste stream produced at paper and pulp mills is most prevalent in
developing economies and is dealt with by either sending the waste to a landfill
or adding significant equipment to the process. This method is both capital and
energy intensive and increases carbon dioxide emissions. By utilizing Minerals
Technologies' NewYield(TM) Integrated Process Technology, papermakers can
eliminate the costs associated with landfill disposal or energy, and in return
will receive a filler pigment that can be used in papermaking.
