Fibermark of Vermont has just announced they will use 100% vegetable oil in their manufacturing process according to a press release on Graphic Arts Online.

“Switching to used vegetable oil now allows the company to reduce its use of number six fuel oil and to significantly eliminate toxic sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions”

          While no financials appear on the Graphic Arts site, subsituting with used vegetable oil should reduce their energy costs. In addition, they add this progress to their long list of green certified accolades, including the complete reusal of their waste water sludge for land fill.
