This two volume report estimates the economic impacts of all major environmental regulations on the pulp and paper industry. Regulations covered include: (1) air-state implementation plans and new source performance standards, (2) water-effluent limitations, and (3) noise-OSHA regulations. In volume 1 the main economic impacts estimated are: (1) prices, (2) closure, (3) external financing. Econometric analysis was used to estimate demand and supply curves for the major product sectors. The economics of model plants was used to assess closures and long run prices. A financial funds flow model was developed to estimate cash flow requirements for growth and environmental costs.
