Special Report No. 89-08: Pulp Effluents in the Aquatic Environment: A Report of the Scientific Panel on Pulping Effluents in the Aquatic Environment

In 1988, the Procter and Gamble Company retained Sirrine Environmental Consultants to assemble the available information on pulping effluents in the aquatic environment. This information was then submitted to an international panel of independent scientists for evaluation. The panel was asked to (a) examine the North American data to determine whether it provided evidence of the compatibility of biologically treated effluents with healthy and productive aquatic ecosystems, and (b) identify the sources of apparent contradictions between recent North American and Northern European research.
