Bill Carter--
The abandonement of new ONP de-inking capacity was partially tied to high
ONP proices--though they were not very high relative to the rtun up in
pricing during the late 1980s--but because there was too much capacity
worldwide--it takes less time to get a mill up and running in Asia than in
Texas, and like the rule of capture, first mill on line is likley to be
able to get more customers than ones opening several months down the line.

No one seems to be mentioning the confuision created by "post consumer"
certification for news, which seems to have confused the market place as
mills looked for paper certified to be "post-consumer" but could not find
anyone to verify it.
