Maximising Paper Production with Economic Water Usage
Water treatment is an integral part of operations in the pulp and paper industry. Inevitably, pulp and paper mills produce large volumes of wastewater containing high levels of Absorbable Organic Halides (AOX), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD). In addition to these contaminants, chemicals such as chlorine dioxide, sodium silicates and aluminium sulphate result in large quantities of water wasted and not meeting the requisite discharge standards.
Without any water recycling in the manufacturing process, the continual use of large quantities of process water is costly for any industry. As water and wastewater management experts, Hyflux can help the pulp and paper industry save cost by designing effective water solution systems that are efficient in their water usage while meeting the water qualities for manufacturing processes as well as discharge.
