Description: This report presents a relational database with estimates of annual production capacity for all mill locations in the United States where paper, paperboard, or market pulp were produced from 1970 to 2000. Data for more than 500 separate mill locations are included in the database, with annual capacity data for each year from 1970 to 2000 (more than 17, 000 individual data records). Numeric code, company name, city, state, region, and local postal ZIP code are included in the database. Capacity estimates are given for each of 12 principal categories of paper or paperboard commodities as well as different categories of market pulp. Capacity data at each mill location are further differentiated by process type within each category of paper or paperboard; for example, capacity based on recycled fiber is differentiated from capacity based on wood pulp. Estimates of mill capacity by process were derived from industry directories, corporate reports, trade journal articles, and other sources. This report provides documentation of the capacity database and a summary of capacity trends by commodity category, process, and region. The report includes tabulations and charts of annual capacity trends and also maps of capacity by commodity, process, and location for 1970 and 2000. By illustrating shifts in capacity, the report describes some of the more significant changes that have occurred in pulp and paper technology during the past several decades.

Keywords: Paper mills--United States, Wood-pulp industry--United States
