Environmental sustainability increased in significance during the early 1990s. An anaerobic effluent treatment plant started up in 1990.
Energy production was modernised with the advent of a new combined heat and power plant in 1993. The natural-gas-fuelled plant boasts greater efficiency and is more environmentally sound. The power plant also made the mill self-sufficient in terms of electricity.
