June 16, 2014: Rockline Installs Largest Geothermal System for Use in Production Facility

Geothermal Heating and Cooling Technology to Reduce Energy Reliance by 65 Percent

BOONEVILLE, Ark. — Rockline Industries announced that it has installed the nation’s largest single geothermal heating and cooling system for use in a production facility. The use of geothermal technology at the 1.2 million-square-foot plant, located in Booneville, Arkansas, is expected to reduce Booneville’s reliance on overall energy and natural gas by 65 percent.

Fossil fuel independence is a corporate goal of Rockline. The company has pledged to use energy more efficiently and to move towards greater use of renewable energy sources. The transition from a conventional HVAC system to a geothermal system is expected to help Rockline reduce company-wide greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent. This will significantly exceed the five-year Rockline goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 15 percent by the end of fiscal year 2015.

Nick Santoleri, Rockline vice president of operations, global wet wipes, said, “Rockline’s commitment to sustainability comes from our desire to exceed the expectations of our customers, and it’s the right thing to do. A sustainable and responsible manufacturing process leads to better value and ensures a better, cleaner world in which we all can live.”

Rockline Industries is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of coffee filters and consumer, health care, industrial, and institutional wet wipes. For more information, visit www.rocklineind.com.
