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.
