  >>Pope & Talbot operates a bleach pupl plant along the banks ofthe
  Willamette River. You can guess the effluent. They defend not going
  chlorine-free because there is not a big enough specialty market for
  chlorine-free pulp. They claim if they go TCF in the current market place
  they are in trouble because they cannot achieve a chlorine-free 87/88 point
  pulp without lossing 15% fiber strength. Are they full of BS or are they
  right? Please advise. 
  >>Thank you so very very much,

  entwined, each nourishing the other.
