Alliance for Environmental Technology
A Responsible Care® Supporting Association

The Alliance for Environmental Technology (AET) is an international association of chemical manufacturers dedicated to improving the environmental performance of the pulp and paper industry. AET was created to establish a clearing house of educational and technical resources relating to Chlorine Dioxide and it's use in papermaking.

As a priority issue, AET supports the use of chlorine dioxide bleaching (also known as Elemental Chlorine-Free or ECF), a pollution prevention technology recognized by the International Joint Commission and the International Court of Justice. It is a remarkable bleaching agent that eliminates persistent, bioaccumulative toxic substances in mill waste-water. Chlorine dioxide is also an essential component for producing the highest quality pulp and paper products.

What's New

  • For the 22nd year in a row, Elemental Chlorine-Free (ECF) Pulp increased its share of the world's bleached chemical pulp market. The greater than 93% market share ECF pulp captured in 2010 confirms ECF as the best available bleaching technology for chemical pulps. The growth for ECF is documented in "Trends in World Bleached Pulp Production: 1990 - 2012," a report released today by the Alliance for Environmental Technology (AET).
