The pulp and paper manufacturing industry produces pulp and paper for various finished products, including packaging and business cards. This is an industry that is found across the globe, with several multi-national companies and operations. Often, the only way to meet client demands is to rely on various companies throughout the world. Trade organizations are also part of the industry, and work on both national and international levels to promote the interests of the organization. Additional jobs can range from engineers to graphic designers and marketers. Investors and other financial industries also have a vested interest in the pulp and paper industry.
Pulp and paper are very closely related. Pulp is made from plastics, plant fibers and timber products, among other materials. Mills process these materials, developing pulp with the different textures for multiple uses. Finished pulp can be turned into paper of all different textures, thicknesses and with other various characteristics. This also includes edible paper, specialty products and cardboard. Workers in the pulp and paper industry are constantly involved in research and development to find and come up with new paper products. Often, the pulp and paper industry is closely tied into other related industries, like industrial design and packaging. Part of industry research includes finding out if there are any refinements that could make the process more efficient, cut down costs, add quality or offer other types of benefits to both companies and consumers.
As with any other industry, pulp and paper manufacturing is subject to regulations from the government. One common concern is how environmentally safe the pulp and paper industry is. Some processes can cause pollution and result in a large amount of waste. Luckily, many pulp and paper industries are moving toward recyclable methods and using non-toxic processes to prepare their products.
CCI provides on-going support for a major transmission plant in the Midwest on a scheduled and on-call basis. This work is performed in conjunction and coordination with the plant’s operations and maintenance team in order to insure continued, high quality operation of key components. CCI responds to in-plant emergencies to restore plant operations as quickly as possible. CCI’s participation in the management of this facility assists in providing quality products for the plant’s customers.
CCI has provided fluid removals, equipment cleaning, and residuals management services for equipment and related piping systems in advance of the removal (strip-out) of the equipment at a former automotive plant in Ohio. Also, depending on project scope, CCI provides cleaning of pits and trenches as necessary in advance of, or during, equipment removal. In execution of this work, CCI operates in close coordination with the Owner’s site, engineering, and environmental representatives. Effective strip-out preparation provided by CCI helps reduce equipment demolition timing and helps maintain project cost and schedule.
To support Owner developed demolition specifications, and regulatory requirements, CCI addressed the universal wastes, residual chemicals, and surface cleaning of a former auto plant in Michigan. The objective of this pre-demolition cleaning is to remove hazardous materials so that the demolition can occur without impacting other media. This pre-demolition cleaning also maximizes recovery and recycling efforts by reducing surface contamination and avoiding the disposal of valuable construction materials.
In support of rehabilitation of an abandoned auto plant in Michigan, CCI provided post-demolition cleaning of concrete surfaces; including slabs, pits, and trenches. This effort not only provided a safer work environment, it also facilitated backfilling and other rehabilitation activities.
