Acquired in May 2011 by M2Green Redevelopment, LLC, the Frenchtown Technology & Industrial Center in Missoula, Montana, is a 3,000-acre brownfield development site located along the Clark Fork River in the Missoula Valley. Built in 1957, the facility last operated as an integrated pulp and paper mill, producing up to 850,000 dry tons of wood pulp and up to 745,000 tons of linerboard per year. The mill closed on January 8, 2010.

The redevelopment team is currently in the planning phase of evaluating any necessary environmental clean-up and determining future development opportunities. In addition to pulp and paper facilities, the site contains a large wood yard that can chip and process approximately one-million green tons of wood per year.
