Abstract
The U.S. pulp and paper manufacturing industry uses a considerable amount of fossil fuels which produce greenhouse gases (GHG). If fully implemented by industry, this project can reduce fossil fuel use by the equivalent of 18.5 million barrels of oil per year, and reduce GHG emissions by 10.5 million tons per year. The pulp and paper industry uses this fossil fuel in the chemical recovery portion of the pulping process, specifically the lime regeneration process. The Industry
