oil inputs to paper?
I came across the following statement in a paper vs. plastic debate: -
"There is a lot of petroleum used in the manufacturing of paper products. "
++ can anyone enlighten me as to what part of paper manufacturing consumes
a "lot of petroleum"? All I can think of is hauling the logs and hauling
the paper; Are petro and petro byproducts inputs to any of the delignen
processing? Is this the source of the dioxin byproduct?
