Pulp & Paper

LEADING IN Online Water Analysis for the E pulp and paper INDUSTRY

Manufacturing pulp and paper requires a substantial amount of water. The pulp and paper industry is the largest industrial consumer of water in Western countries.  This requires an innovative water analysis solution provider that can reduce contaminants, reduce impacting quality on production yields, and reduce the water loss caused by inefficiencies.  There is growing concern about water efficiency and quality.

More than 50% of the pulp and paper industry water use is for process water.  This process water is contaminated during the manufacturing process with sediment, effluent solids, chemical oxygen demand (COD), total organic carbon (TOC), and biological oxygen demand (BOD) contaminants.

Challenging water analysis issues:

  • Wastewater reuse
  • Water quality discharge regulations
