Renewable Raw Materials for Quality Solutions

With consumers making the switch from plastic wrapping and packaging, paper products made with renewable raw materials are fast becoming the ideal solution. ADM delivers sustainable solutions by focusing on recycling, pulpability efficiency and utilization and maximizing the use of renewable ingredients.


Traditionally, paper and corrugated cardboard is produced using cellulosic fibers like wood fibers, cotton linters and various other sources, all of which have an impact on the quality of the paper and the production process. Raw materials are often added to enable efficient processing and formation of the final paper stock. The use of emulsifiers, binders and other functional additives are instrumental to the final paper quality and, with the increasing demand for paper and cardboard, ADM is providing plant-based additives, binders and ingredients to support the sustainability goals of the paper production process.

The pulp and paper industry has seen some major changes lately, including the rise of low-priced imports, an increase in online purchasing and more diversified paper demand.

We recognize that price competitiveness drives success in the domestic packaging materials industry. ADM is committed to providing high quality materials supported by world class production facilities and logistics.
