A paper mill produced up to 5,000 m3 per day of effluent containing paper fibre and filler. The only means of effluent disposal was to sewer.
CAP Technology provided a treatment plant involved raw effluent screening, balancing in a 3,000 m3 stirred balance tank followed by clarification using chemical treatment. Cooling towers were also installed to reduce the temperature of the effluent to comply with the Environment Agency consent conditions. A screw press was used to dewater the waste sludge produced in the clarification system.
