STEAM Forward Episode 11: Math | Soup to Nuts at Georgia-Pacific

What do diapers, ice cream and LCD screens have in common? They’re all made with cellulose fibers from right here at Georgia-Pacific’s Foley Cellulose Mill.

Just where do all of these cellulose fibers come from? We’ll explore how this mill extracts a whopping 465 thousand metric tons of cellulose a year from trees!

Public Affairs Manager Scott Mixon shows us all the specialized machinery and hundreds of skilled workers needed to make that happen.

During this episode, hosted by Dr. Meisa Salaita, we follow Scott as he shows us the whole process… from soup to nuts.
