U.S. Pulp and Paper: Water Demand and Management Trends

21 July 2017
Data Insight

The U.S. pulp and paper industry collectively withdrew 814 million gallons or .06% of water in 2016 – of which approximately 70% is surface water. Historically characterized by high water intensity, the pulp and paper industry has a minimal water footprint relative to other industries.

Throughout the sector, companies have committed to substantial reductions in water use and effluent discharges, driven largely to environmental compliance and a push to reduce OPEX.

In this Data Insight, Bluefield Water experts analyze:

  • Projected Industry Water Use to 2025
  • Key Companies and Water Management Policies
  • Wastewater Treatment Technologies and Trends
  • Water Usage Process Breakdown
  • Includes access to data appendix of pulp and paper companies, pulp and paper mills by state, and water use.

More analysis of U.S. industrial water markets and more water market data.
