The sources, distribution, and losses of PCBs in the U.S. pulp and paper industry are discussed in detail. The major source of PCBs to the industry is recycled carbonless copy paper manufactured from 1957 to 1971, but the amounts of PCBs from this source diminished rapidly after 1971. A model showing past and projected PCBs content in product and wastewaters from the industry is presented and discussed. Estimated costs (worst-case basis) for wastewater treatment to achieve one ppb PCBs in effluents from the industry are developed; results indicate a 3 to 5 percent product cost increase will result from such treatment.
