The Pulp & Paper industry is among the most intensive industrial water user. Pulp & paper mills produce large volumes of waste water and residual sludge. In such conditions waste water treatment, discharge, and sludge disposal are critical issues. Contaminants include suspended solids, chlorinated organic compounds, chemical oxygen demand (COD) and biological oxygen demand (BOD). Treatment options include solids and particulate separation by clarification, secondary biological treatment (aerobic or anaerobic) for removing biodegradable organic matter and tertiary treatment technologies such as membrane filtration, UV disinfection and granular activated carbon to further treat the effluent to the requested quality to discharge or re-use. Due to the high quantity of water necessary for paper production, water treatment for reuse is one of the main targets of Major Companies involved in this market, that are very attentive to the environmental impact.
