Some more ways in which paper industries can improve are by reducing the emission of greenhouse gasses and other harmful gasses like chlorine, Sulphur dioxide etc., reducing the amount of water required to produce paper, reducing air pollution which finally leads to acid rain, reducing water pollution, reducing the waste produced, and reducing deforestation and reducing the other negative other effects of making paper.
