Some Permanent Papers Available in the U.S.

Fifteen more paper companies have returned the questionnaire forms sent out in December. Early returns were published in the last issue, with background information on the survey method. All returns to date are included in the list below. The final results will be published in March as a separate.

The ANSI/NISO standard was the criterion for inclusion in the list. Some of the papers in the list contain recycled fiber or even posconsumer recycled fiber. They provide a partial answer to the question whether paper can be both permanent and recycled.
