The purpose of the report is to identify and describe technologies and/or processes under evaluation, development or in use with potential to reduce or eliminate the formation of chlorinated organics during the chlorine bleaching of chemically produced pulps. A manual literature search as well as a computerized literature search of the following data bases was performed: (1) PAPERCHEM, (2) NTIS, (3) CHEM ABSTRACTS, (4) DISSERTATION ABSTRACTS, AND (5) PAPRICAN. The literature does not reveal any single process that can entirely eliminate chlorinated organics as well as maintain the final high brightness needed to produce quality market pulp and/or paper. These chlorinated organics are usually measured as Total Organic Chlorine (TOCI) or as Adsorbable Organic Halogen (AOX).
