It explains that paper and wood products manufacturing facilities use all parts of the raw material to not only manufacture products used in everyday life, but also to create more than two-thirds of the energy needed in the manufacturing processes. Most often, this involves using manufacturing residuals and combined heat and power technology to maximize efficiency and provide tremendous greenhouse gas reduction benefits.

The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) serves to advance a sustainable U.S. pulp, paper, packaging, and wood products manufacturing industry through fact-based public policy and marketplace advocacy. The American Wood Council (AWC) is the voice of North American wood products manufacturing.
