Rockline Installs Geothermal System At Booneville, Ark., Plant

Rockline Industries Inc. — a Sheboygan, Wis.-based manufacturer of wipes and coffee filters — reports it has installed the United States’ largest geothermal heating and cooling system for use in a production facility at its plant in Booneville, Ark. The 1.2-million-square-foot plant is the first production facility in the nation to be both heated and cooled using geothermal technology.
“Rockline’s commitment to sustainability comes from our desire to exceed the expectations of our customers, and it’s the right thing to do,” said Nick Santoleri, vice president of operations, global wet wipes, Rockline. “A sustainable and responsible manufacturing process leads to better value and ensures a better, cleaner world in which we all can live.”
The Booneville plant’s conversion from a traditional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system to a geothermal system is expected to reduce its reliance on overall energy and natural gas by 65 percent and company-wide greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent.
