Re: [GreenYes] Chlorine bleaching and dioxins/furans in paper
Title: 3-day Green Purchasers training conference
Dear John:
 
I would think the following organizations would be your best bet to either have the data or know directly who does:
 
Chlorine Free Product Association
 
Reach for Unbleached
 
ReThink Paper
 
Conservatree Paper

Subject: [GreenYes] Chlorine bleaching and dioxins/furans in paper

Does anyone have information on the amount of chlorine used to bleach various grades of paper -- both with virgin and recycled fiber -- the estimated quantity of dioxins and furans created by the bleaching of paper and the amount of the dioxins/furans that remain in the paper after bleaching vs the amount that is released to the environment at the bleaching facility?
 
References to reports and articles would be especially welcome.
 
Thanks much,
 
John Reindl, Recycling Manager
