Pulp & Paper


Water treatment for the pulp and paper industry

The pulp and paper industry is constantly evolving and is faced with growing environmental opposition and constraints. This means that it has to look for ways of making significant improvements to areas such as the water cycle, which affects production quality and productivity, while complying with stringent regulatory constraints.

The pulp and paper industry uses large amounts of water (pulp preparation and bleaching water, boiler feed water and cooling system water) and subsequently has to treat significant volumes of wastewater and sludge. Therefore effective water management (including streamlined consumption and recycling) can have a direct effect on the plant’s production, performance and environmental impact.
