Technical Bulletin No. 0009: White Water Research Report: Variation and Similarities in Jute Board and Specialty Mill Waste Waters

  In the process operation Paperboard Mills discharge considerable quantities of waste waters, which exert an effect upon the receiving stream. Before fundamental studies could commence, it was necessary to make a survey of a number of mills to determine the characteristics of the mixed raw wastes and those coming from various machines, as well as the reductions in suspended solids and oxygen demanding materials accomplished by the treatment and recovery devices commonly in use. For a proper appraisal of the pollutional characteristics of the wastes, a study was made of the total pollution contributed by the mills, as well as the various fractions of the wastes discharged.
