The EOS is 99% green. We visited the paper area, wet-dry end area, mill area, wet transfer, knife, board dryer just to name a few. John Yakowenko covered the history of wall board, the corporation and then the technical processes of manufacturing the product. This plant is LEED certified and with the raw materials, mixing, coating involved was a safe, clean environment. Great job performed by the Host.  Good turn-out with about 25 people made up of Senior Section Members, Students and Guest.
