POTSDAM — The New York State Pollution Prevention Institute has recognized Potsdam Specialty Paper Inc. for innovative environmental efforts that have resulted in significant reductions in the plant’s energy use and waste.

The institute, managed by and operated at Rochester Institute of Technology, presented the award during a ceremony at the paper mill Aug. 1.

The mill earned the Advancement in Cleaner Production Award for making significant investments in projects that have considerably reduced the plant’s environmental footprint.

The company received the environmental award after successfully implementing the recommendations of CITEC Business Solutions, which assessed and recommended a three-tiered strategy for the mill to address its waste-management and power-consumption challenges. CITEC is a nonprofit economic development company with headquarters at Clarkson University.
