Pulp & Paper

Pulp and paper waste streams are exceptionally well suited for spectral analysis due to the high concentration of UV/Vis light absorbing organics in their process water and waste streams. Continuous monitoring of the organic load by means of COD/BOD correlations will help ensure the treatment process is carried out in the most efficient way possible by optimizing aeration rates and nutrient dosing while also making sure that all the regulatory goals are met.

Applications include:

  • Reduced sulfides monitoring
  • Effluent COD/BOD/TSS monitoring
  • Nutrient dosing/optimization for waste treatment
  • Colour/dyes in effluent
