About Us

The Alliance for Environmental Technology (AET) is an international association of chemical manufacturers dedicated to improving the environmental performance of the pulp and paper industry. AET was created to establish a clearing house of educational and technical resources relating to Chlorine Dioxide and it's use in papermaking.

As a priority issue, AET supports the use of chlorine dioxide bleaching (also known as Elemental Chlorine-Free or ECF), a pollution prevention technology recognized by the International Joint Commission and the International Court of Justice. It is a remarkable bleaching agent that eliminates persistent, bioaccumulative toxic substances in mill waste-water. Chlorine dioxide is also an essential component for producing the highest quality pulp and paper products.
