NCASI Five-Year Emissions Survey

NCASI has conducted an industry-wide survey at five-year intervals, since 1980, to evaluate trends in US pulp and paper mill SO2 and NOx emissions. The five-year survey has included total filterable PM emissions since 2005. Results from the most recent survey conducted in 2010 suggest total even though paper production in 2010 was around 35% greater than in 1980, SO2 emissions from US pulp and paper mills were almost 75% lower and NOx emissions were 30% lower than in 1980.
