This report describes the Pulp and Paper Industry. The production processes are summarized as is this industry's dependence upon enormous quantities of water. In as much as this report is intended to summarize a very complicated, multifaceted industry, a great deal of detail has been sacrificed for brevity and for a cleaner understanding of the industry taken as a whole.

The summary is in three major parts. The first concerns size and importance of the pulp and paper industry, and includes basic statistics on pulp and paper manufacture for the world, the United states and selected other countries. Second an overview of the production processes involved in the manufacture of pulp and paper, this includes the various inputs and outputs associated with this industry. The third part of the report concerns itself with one of the major outputs of this industrial process: pollution.
