THE DATA BASE. THE POTENTIAL FOR ENERGY CONSERVATION IN NINE SELECTED INDUSTRIES. VOLUME 8: SELECTED PAPER PRODUCTS. FIRST EDITION

The purpose of this study, contained in nine separate volumes, was to provide basic data on energy consumption in industry and to identify opportunities for energy conservation. Each volume is organized into 4 sections: section 1 is an introduction, section 2 describes the methodology employed in the study, section 3 contains executive summary tables of energy consumption data for each of the nine industries examined, and section 4 analyzes the data collected for one specific industry. Volume 8 covers energy consumption for four major paper and paperboard products (newsprint, writing paper, corrugated containers, and folding boxboard). The cost of the total primary energy used in producing a ton of each of the selected paper products is as follows: newsprint, $7.94; writing paper, $11.02; corrugated containers, $10.20; and SBS folding boxboard, $9.99. The primary energy costs as percentages of sales prices are 5.3%, 4.5%, 4.9%, and 5.0%, respectively. Various trends are discussed which are either increasing or decreasing the energy consumption per ton of product.
