SUEZ Water - Water Technologies & Water

Pulp & Paper Water Reuse

Driven by the growth in water deficits and the increasing supply costs of freshwater, water reuse and internal recycling solutions are critical for managing our water resources. Growing demand for cardboard and packaging are driving producers to expand production capacity while staying within regulatory constraints. As the pulp & paper production is a very water and energy-intensive process, we understand the need for efficient treatment solutions that can increase available resources at a lower cost. Our proven technologies, as well as new developments in wastewater treatment, are designed to address our customers' challenges while meeting the increasingly stringent regulatory requirements regarding discharge.

Case Studies

An innovative approach to water reuse in the pulp and paper industry

A facility that makes Bleached Eucalyptus Kraft Pulp was facing increasing pressure through stringent environmental regulations impacting effluent discharge. SUEZ worked with the customer to identify the most cost-effective solution to address the water challenge and position the pulp producer for expansion and growth. Read more

Water reuse technology saves European packaging mill €500k per annum

An Italian facility that makers containerboard from recycled paper and board was suffering from subsidence and periodic water shortages, so much that local authorities asked the facility to reduce its borehole water consumption. SUEZ created a tertiary effluent reuse solution utilizing ultrafiltration (UF) and electrodialysis reversal (EDR) technology to return highly clarified water back to the process. Read more
