Monday, August 27, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

The American Forest & Paper Association released its July 2012 U.S. Recovered Fiber Monthly Report today. 

According to the report, total U.S. industry consumption of recovered paper in July was 2.43 million tons, less than 1 percent lower than June 2012.  Year-to-date consumption in 2012 is 4 percent lower than during the same period last year. 

U.S. exports of recovered paper, as reported by the U.S. Census Bureau, dropped 3 percent in June compared to May, led by a steep decrease in Pulp Substitutes exports to China.  Year-to-date exports of recovered paper in 2012 are 5.5 percent lower than during the same period in 2011.

The complete report with detailed tables, charts, and historical data can be purchased by contacting Dina Menton at dina_menton@afandpa.org or 202-463-2710.
