(Natural News) Chlorine dioxide, a little-known treatment option for covid-19, has also been found to eliminate polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD) and dibenzofurans in the wood pulp industry. A 1995 study — Destruction of PCDD and PCDF in bleached pulp by chlorine dioxide treatment — shows that chlorine dioxide treatments of wood pulp can reduce the number of dioxins in the finished product and in the effluent wastewater.
In one of the experiments, the pulp that was treated with chlorine dioxide contained anywhere between 39% and 69% of the PCDD that was in the original pulp. In a second experiment, pulp treated with chlorine dioxide contained 56-63% of the PCDD in the original pulp. On average, chlorine dioxide treatments cut the total concentration of PCDD in half. In the second experiment, the researchers also tested effluent wastewater. After the chlorine dioxide treatment, the dioxins were not measurable; they were destroyed in the process.

Chlorine dioxide could help clean up the pulp manufacturing industry
In the pulp manufacturing industry, machines convert wood chips or other sources of plant fiber into a thick fiber board which can be shipped to a paper mill for further processing. Due to the chlorine bleaching process, these softwood pulps typically contain polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans — two of the most toxic substances known to man.
