About this book

Research on water pollution control in the pulp and paper industry seems to be at a turning point. New production technologies developed in recent years are leading to greater economy in water use and the avoidance of the chemicals (such as chlorine) that cause the most troublesome effluents. However additional problems must now be tackled, eg. corrosion and the accumulation of compounds that impair product quality. Increasingly the need for innovation in external treatment is being replaced by a new focus on in-plant control and residues management that demands close collaboration between treatment process experts and specialists in pulp and paper making. This was the focus of the 4th Tampere symposium, at which two hundred experts from 24 countries considered the state of water pollution control in the pulp and paper industry. The papers selected for this volume cover: effluent-free production; effluents and biotransformations; environmental impact assessments; removal of chlorinated organics; enhanced biodegradation and removal of non-biodegradable residues; analysis, development and application of aerobic processes; nutrient control; and special processes.


Part 1 Towards effluent-free pulp and paper production: pulp and paper manufacture in transition, B. Myreen; water protection in the pulp industry - Austrian and central European situation, H. Kroiss. Part 2 Effluent constituents and biotransformations: characteristics of the chlorinated organic substances in filtrates from bleaching of oxygen-delignified eucalypt kraft pulp, T.J. Smith et al; bioavailability of pulp and paper mill effluent phosphorus, M. Priha. Part 3 Procedure for environmental impact assessment: integrated pollution control of emissions from the pulp and paper industry, L.J. Webb. Part 4 Removal of chlorinated organic compounds: anaerobic and aerobic treatment for AOX removal, J.F. Ferguson; introduction of bioremediation ability into granular sludge, N. Christiansen and B.K. Ahring. Part 5 Enhanced biodegradation: enhancement of biotreatment effluent quality by illuminated titanium dioxide and membrane pretreatment of the kraft extraction waste stream and by increased chlorine dioxide substitution, R.A. Sierka and C.W. Bryant. Part 6 Removal of non-biodegradable residues: bioregeneration of activated carbon in a fluidized GAC bed treating bleached kraft mill secondary effluent, P. Vuoriranta and S. Remo. Part 7 Analysis and development of aerobic processes: pilot plant experience with an aerobic moving bed biofilm reactor for treatment of NSSC wastewater, A. Broch-Due et al. Part 8 Nutrient control: experimental study on the control of nutrients in activated sludge treatment, R. Saunamaki. Part 9 Application of anaerobic processes: overview of the anaerobic toxicity caused by organic forest industry wastewater pollutants, R. Sierra-Alvarez et al; feasibility of anaerobic pre-treatment for the effluents from hardboard and laminated board industry, V. Eroglu et al. Part 10 Special processes: decolorisation of extraction stage bleach plant effluent by combined hypochlorite oxidation and anaerobic treatment, T. Clark et al. (Part Contents).
