THURSDAY, AUGUSTS, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE. IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN 1HREE NOT A STOCK CAR—Although it may look like it, the car shown here is not a stock car, at least not yet. This painted up Jewel ol yesteryear will be driven in turn by many of the members of the Gogebic Range Junior Chamber of Commerce as they seek to increase the organization's membership. It is planned that each member of the group will either drive the car or wear a cardboard sign wherever he goes until he signs ftp a new member. Both the car and the signs carry such phrases as "Help, I Need A New Member," or "Join the Jaycees." (Daily Globe Photo) Pulp Mill to Be Constructed in Wisconsin City A multi-million dollar pulp mill wil be constructed in Wisconsin Rapids by Consoiclated Papers, Inc., it was announced by Stanton W. Mead, company president The program was approved Tuesday by the company's Board of Directors. Engineering for a 300 ton a day bleached kraft mill will begin immediately. The new plant should be ready for opera- t i o n in mid 1967. A g r o u nci- break'ng date has not been set pending completion of d e tailed engineering plans. The plant is expected to cost $20 million. The new pulp mill will replace the 200 ton a clay sufite pulp mill here which will cease oper-, ation at the firm's Wiscon sin! Rapids Division when the new j plant is completed. ! Present plans call for building I the plant in the City of Wiscon- j sin Rapids on a site north of the' present Wisconsin Rapids Division woodroom between Third! Avenue North and the Wisconsin Rivei : * * * ' "The mill will be constructed here t« permit close integration | with our local paper mills and : existing stream and generating facilities. Pulp will be pumped direct! 1 , to our two large mills-' Wisconsin Rapids and Biron Divisions Here we can also utilize supporting facilities such as ' our maintenance shops." Mead said. Meari noted that invitations to build this plant in other areas have Loen received from various industrial cl e v e 1 o pnient groups in the northern hemisphere including several Canadian pv-vinces. Construction of the kraft mill marks the first chemical pulp cxpan.5icji by the company since 1045 During this twenty-year period Consolidated's ena m e 1 paper production has nearly tripled Kraft mills are traclitiona 1 ly known for their odor, Mead observed but he pointed out that significant technical advanc e s had bra- made to greatly r c - cluce this problem. "We have visited r i number of mills in the U.S. --r>c' abroad to observe their odor control techniques as well a; their plant engineering. We find new mills can do an excellent job in odor reduction which older mills find difficult to accomplish. The best control devices will be employed in the new mill to minimize odors Studies have also been made of prevailing wind patterns. The plant will be so located to take advantage of them; thus, when -jombined with the latest technological equipment we expect to do the best odor-control job that is possible." * * * "Stream conditions on the Wisconrin River will be greatly improved with the demise of the sull'ite mill and the start-up of the kraft facility. When our sulfite mill goes down we will sub- stantiaiy reduce the pollution loading by our Wisconsin Rapids Division. We anticipate a 70 to 80 per cent reduction," Mead reported Tht company plans to continue operation of its other sulfite pulp mill at Appleton, Wisconsin. "At the outset of our study the possibility of closing this mill was considered but with that plant's preferred positi o n relativ to our Canadian spruce lands for pulpwood supply and with ilfs profitable engagement NEW TEACHER—Russell L. I Bailey, Bergland, son of Mr. \ and Mrs. Carl Bailey, will be the new social studies teacher; and coach at Marenisco this' year, according to Northern | Michigan University. A June | graduate at NMU. Bailey, re-j ceived a bachelor of science degree in history. While at North- i ern, he was a member of the ! Delta Omega Nu Fraternity, of which he was treasurer. in by-product sales, its survival was assured," Mead said. Detail? on construction and employment prospects, costs and financing, type of digester and i recovery units, steam and; power requirements, and other '< elements of the plant will be j announced later when final engi- j neerinp plans have been drawn' and approved. The company will; use local hardwoods and softwoods as it does in existing sul-1 fite mi'l augmented by p i n e., Plant engineering work to be' handle 1 by independent consulting firms has been arranged , All ot the mill's production— 300 toils a day of bone-d r y bleacher! pulp or 100,000 tons a yenr- will be used by the Company in its own papermaking operations. Consolidated operates plants in ; Wisconsin Rapids, Biron, W hit-, ing, Stevens Point, and Appleton, Wis., and employs approx- \ imatel.v 4,500 people.
