About

This project provides a tool that can quantitatively assess proposed strategies to achieve meaningful boosts in the recovery and reuse of waste pulp and paper. It accounts for the system wide shifts in recovered fiber that result from changes in quality requirements and specifications of materials recovered. This analysis can help identify how to prioritize actions that can make fiber recovery systems more efficient.
