Code of practice for the management of air emissions from pulp and paper facilities: appendix 3

Appendix 3: determining annual production

The annual quantity of finished product should be aggregated by using the total daily production from January 1 to December 31.

The production of a finished product should be expressed in air-dried metric tonnes, as follows:

  1. For pulp, if the water content is greater than 10%, the weight is to be adjusted such that this content does not exceed 10%; if the water content is equal to or less than 10%, the weight does not need to be adjusted;
  2. For a paper product, the weight is that of the paper after it has been machine-dried.

The measurement of a finished product on an annual basis is in accordance with the Pulp and Paper Effluent Regulations (PPER) production measurement method.
