GEORGIA-PACIFIC WINS NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL AWARD

 GEORGIA-PACIFIC WINS NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL AWARD
 ATLANTA, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Georgia-Pacific Corp. (NYSE: GP)


today was awarded a national Environmental and Energy Achievement Award for an air pollution control project at its Woodland, Maine, pulp and paper mill.
 The competition was sponsored by the American Paper Institute and the National Forest Products Association (API/NFPA). Georgia-Pacific has won seven awards in the environmental category since 1973.
 Georgia-Pacific received the award for developing an enhanced method of reducing sulfur dioxide emissions from one of the mill's power boilers with an innovative modification to the boiler's scrubber. The procedure uses an internally generated alkaline process stream to achieve a significant reduction in sulfur dioxide emissions when burning high-sulfur fuel oil.
 T. Marshall Hahn Jr., Georgia-Pacific's chairman and chief executive officer, accepted the award at ceremonies in Washington, D.C., along with Dale K. Phenicie, manager - environmental affairs, North, and C. Scott Beal, environmental affairs manager at the Woodland mill.
 The API/NFPA awards program, now in its 19th year, is part of the forest products industry's continuing efforts in environmental and energy improvements. Companies involved in timber growing and harvesting, and the manufacture of pulp, paper, paperboard and structural wood products are eligible. Judges for the competition are selected from outside the industry.
 Georgia-Pacific is one of the world's leading manufacturers and distributors of pulp, paper and building products and employs approximately 57,000 at more than 500 facilities. The company manages more than 6 million acres of timberlands in the United States and Canada.
