Title: Computer model for economic study of unbleached kraft paperboard production

Author: Ince, Peter J.

Date: 1984

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. FPL 42. Madison, WI: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory; 1984. 42 pages

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: Unbleached kraft paperboard is produced from wood fiber in an industrial papermaking process. A highly specific and detailed model of the process is presented. The model is also presented as a working computer program. A user of the computer program will provide data on physical parameters of the process and on prices of material inputs and outputs. The program is then used to calculate material and energy requirements of the process, and to calculate related revenues and variable costs. The program does not derive capital costs or fixed costs. The program is most useful in estimating precisely the economic impact of changes in physical parameters of the process, changes in technology, or changes in related prices. As such, the model can be used to estimate the economic effect, on revenues and costs, of technological changes or changes in prices.

Keywords: Economics, technology, unbleached kraft, paperboard, process, computer model
