Real-time view for pulp and paper mills

Our solution

Kemira KemConnect™ Water Treatment solutions combine high-performing chemicals with patented online units for monitoring and automated dosage control for all water treatment applications in pulp and paper mills. Staying compliant with environmental regulations requires efficient wastewater treatment operations at pulp and paper mills. Tertiary treatment is increasingly important to ensure that pollutants are removed from effluent before it is discharged. A reliable, real-time view of the wastewater treatment process and effluent quality enables mills to optimize tertiary treatment and chemical usage and achieve performance stability.

Benefit for the customer

  • Optimized, stable and cost-efficient effluent treatment process.
  • Improved effluent quality that remains below environmental permit levels.
  • Savings in treatment chemical consumption.

Competitive advantage

Seasonal variations and changes in the upstream process cause varying effluent composition. This is a challenge for manual treatment operations. A real-time view of pollutant levels with automated control allows an optimized chemical treatment.
