Paper Industry Continues to Recycle

The AF&PA confirmed that in 2008, the paper industry recovered 57.4%, up from 56% in 2007. The trend has been up for years; however, the current recession is allowing for less paper demanded and therefore, less paper will be available. The value of recycled paper has also declined. Note: paper and paperboard capacity in USA has decreased nearly 1% to 96.3million tons. AF&PA forecasts capacity will drop another 1.8% in 2009.
