National Council for Air and Stream Improvement, Inc.
NCASI was originally established to assist the pulp and paper industry in addressing wastewater treatment issues. As the environmental issues facing the industry multiplied, NCASI's research program broadened, most recently in the 1970s with the addition of research to address environmental issues associated with forest management practices and the manufacture of solid wood products. Today, NCASI serves as an environmental resource for the forest products industry in its broadest definition, addressing a myriad of issues of importance to this industry.
