Abstract

The objectives of this study are:

l. To determine the adequacy of markets for paper products.

2. To identify and quantify the costs of the factors affecting pulp and paper production.

The available information indicates that adequate markets exist for paper produced in Utah.

Chemicals, water, labor, and power are available at costs low enough not to prohibit pulp and paper production. An adequate, low priced supply of wood could be purchased from the United States Forest Service. Intermountain and national paper markets would enable a paper producer in Utah to take advantage of lower comparative transportation costs.
