2 Comparison of Paper-based Student Ratings of Faculty With Online PICA. Paper Student Ratings of Faculty Consumption Savings from PICA Quantity of paper per year 3, pounds 1, pounds Wood Use 6 tons 3 tons Net Energy 52 million BTU's 23 million BTU's Purchased Energy 36 million BTU's 16 million BTU's SO2 43 pounds SO2. 19 pounds SO2. Greenhouse Gases 9,683 pounds CO2 equiv. 4,377 pounds CO2 equiv. NOx 15 pounds NOx. 7 pounds NOx. Particulates 10 pounds 4 pounds Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) 4 pounds 2 pounds Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) 5 pounds 2 pounds Wastewater 35,723 gallons 16,146 gallons Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) 16 pounds 7 pounds Total Suspended Solids (TSS) 28 pounds 13 pounds Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) 32 pounds 14 pounds Solid Waste 3,090 pounds 1,397 pounds 2 Explanation of Data Values The Paper Calculator is based on research done by the Paper Task Force, a peer-reviewed study of the lifecycle environmental impacts of paper production and disposal. Wood Use Wood use measures the amount of wood required to produce a given amount of paper. The number of typical trees assumes a mix of hardwoods and softwoods 6-8" in diameter and 40' tall. Calculated collaboratively by Conservatree and Environmental Paper Network based on data from Tom Soder, Pulp & Paper Technology Program, University of Maine, as reported in Recycled Papers: The Essential Guide, by Claudia G. Thompson, The MIT Press, Student Ratings of Faculty used 6 tons, made from about 42 trees PICA saved 3 tons, sparing about 19 trees Net Energy The Paper Calculator includes an energy credit for energy that is created by burning paper or the methane that decomposing paper creates at the end of its life. The Net Energy takes the total amount of energy required to make the paper over its life cycle, and subtracts this energy credit. If most of the energy used to make the paper is purchased, then the energy credit might make the Net Energy lower than the Purchased Energy. The average U.S. household uses 91 million BTUs of energy in a year Student Ratings of Faculty used 52 million BTU's PICA saved 23 million BTU's Purchased Energy A subset of total energy, purchased energy measures how much energy comes from

3 purchased electricity and other fuels. The unit of measure is British Thermal Units (BTUs). The average U.S. household uses 91 million BTUs of energy in a year Student Ratings of Faculty used 38 million BTU's PICA saved 16 million BTU's 3 Sulfur dioxide (SO 2 ) Chemical compound produced when boilers burn fuel that contains sulfur. Of the fuels used in the paper industry, oil and coal generally contain the highest quantities of sulfur. Sulfur dioxide contributes to air pollution problems like acid rain and smog. The average 18-wheel truck emits 5.5 pounds of SO2 in a year. Student Ratings of Faculty emitted 43 pounds, the equivalent of about wheelers/year PICA prevented the emission of 19 pounds, the equivalent of about wheelers/year Greenhouse Gases Greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) from burning fossil fuels and methane from paper decomposing in landfills, contribute to climate change by trapping energy from the sun in the earth's atmosphere. The unit of measure is CO 2 equivalents. The average car emits 11,013 pounds of CO2 in a year. Student Ratings of Faculty contributed 9,683 pounds CO 2 PICA scrubbed 4,377 pounds CO 2 Nitrogen oxides (NOx) Nitrogen Oxides (NOx, which include NO and NO 2 ) are products of the combustion of fuels that contain nitrogen. NOx contribute to acid rain and can react with volatile organic compounds and sunlight in the lower atmosphere to form ozone, a key component of urban smog. The average 18-wheel truck emits 261 pounds of NOx in a year. Student Ratings of Faculty emitted 15 pounds PICA prevented the emission of 7 pounds Particulates Particulates are small particles generated during combustion, and pose a range of health risks, including asthma and other respiratory problems, when inhaled. The average urban bus emits 11.2 pounds of particulate matter in a year Student Ratings of Faculty generated 10 pounds, the equivalent of 1 bus. PICA prevented the generation of 4 pounds Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP) Hazardous Air Pollutants are any of a group of 188 substances identified in the 1990 Clear Air Act amendments because of their toxicity. Student Ratings of Faculty generated 4 pounds PICA prevented the generation of 2 pounds.

4 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are a broad class of organic gases, such as vapors from solvent and gasoline. VOCs react with nitrogen oxides (NOx) in the atmosphere to form ground-level ozone, the major component of smog and a severe lung irritant. Student Ratings of Faculty emitted 5 pounds PICA prevented the emission of 2 pounds Wastewater Wastewater measures the amount of process water that is treated and discharged to a mill's receiving waters. Wastewater volume indicates both the amount of fresh water needed in production and the potential impact of wastewater discharges on the receiving waters. 1 Olympic-sized swimming pool holds 660,430 gallons. Student Ratings of Faculty discharged 35,723 gallons, the equivalent of 2 backyard swimming pools PICA prevented the discharge of 16,146 gallons, the equivalent of 1 backyard swimming pool Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) measures the amount of oxygen that microorganisms consume to degrade the organic material in the wastewater. Discharging wastewater with high levels of BOD can result in oxygen depletion in the receiving waters, which can adversely affect fish and other organisms. Average home discharges 186 pounds of Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) in a year. Student Ratings of Faculty discharged 16 pounds PICA prevented the discharge of 7 pounds 4 Total Suspended Solids (TSS) Total suspended solids (TSS) measure solid material suspended in mill effluent, which can adversely affect bottom-living organisms upon settling in receiving waters and can carry toxic heavy metals and organic compounds into the environment. The average home discharges 207 pounds of Total Suspended Solids (TSS) in a year. Student Ratings of Faculty discharged 28 pounds PICA prevented the discharge of 13 pounds Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) measures the amount of oxidizable organic matter in the mill's effluent. Since wastewater treatment removes most of the organic material that would be degraded naturally in the receiving waters, the COD of the final effluent provides information about the quantity of more persistent substances discharged into the receiving water. The average home discharges 465 pounds of Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) in a year. Student Ratings of Faculty discharged 32 pounds PICA prevented the discharge of 14 pounds

5 Solid Waste Solid Waste includes sludge and other wastes generated during pulp and paper manufacturing, and used paper disposed of in landfills and incinerators. 1 fully-loaded garbage truck weighs an average of 28,000 pounds (based on a rear-loader residential garbage truck). Student Ratings of Faculty generated 3,090 pounds PICA prevented the generation of 1,397 pounds 5
