Technical Bulletin No. 0204: Effluent System of New Zealand Kraft Mill for Discharge into Classified Waters

This paper describes the methods of disposing of effluent from the Kinleith Pulp and Paper Mill of New Zealand  Forest Products Limited, prior to discharge into the Waikato River, a classified inland waterway.   It was the first chemical pulp mill to operate in the country and sanction was given by the pollution control authorities to commence production without any effluent treatment installation, but with some restriction upon the discharge. With the passing of the years, mill production has increased and diversified, while pollution control regulations have become more firmly established on a national scale.
