Paper as it is currently manufactured is so far from carbon-neutral that it's ridiculous. Pulp and paper mills use copious amounts of steam for heat in the process (both pulping and paper-making). Most mills manage to generate steam with hogged-fuel boilers that use bark and wood waste. Most of the boiler-houses that I have worked in base-load with such materials, and take load-swings with oil, gas, etc.
