Some chemicals are used during the recycling of paper, including chlorinated compounds, oxygen, enzymes, hydrogen peroxide and surfactants. Which chemicals are used depends on what type of paper is being recycled. The worst of these chemicals is found when virgin and recycled papers undergo a bleaching process during their pulp stage. Some chlorinated compounds, also called dioxins, are carcinogenic and can be used during the bleaching process, despite their harmful effects if released in the environment. To avoid these chemicals, look for the ECF (Elemental Chlorine Free) logo.
