PULP & PAPER INDUSTRIES

Pulp and Paper Industry and the Environment

New bleached kraft pulp mills and modernised existing mills have been required to meet strict environmental guidelines set by regulatory authorities. This has led pulp mill designs to include state-of-the-art technology applications and for existing mills to incorporate new technological advances in process design which improve liquid effluent quality and/or reduce the quantity discharged. The trend is towards low-chlorine bleaching sequences or chlorine-free bleaching technology.

The formation of organochlorines and their emission in bleaching liquid effluents has become a major focus of the public's concern about the environmental impact of the pulp and paper industry.
