Abstract

Highly efficient treatment is required at a bleached kraft pulp plant on the Flint River near Oglethorpe, Ga. The stringent proposed effluent limitations are less than half of the current Federal New Source Performance Standards for bleached kraft pulp plants. An innovative pulping process and extensive wastewater recycling minimize BOD and color in the wastewater. The process effluent is clarified and treated in a 24-day biological system. A $3 million holding pond with the capacity to store the entire plant effluent for 2 months is available. Results of continuing studies suggest no significant long-term ecological effects on the river. Recent data indicate that the Flint River plant has the lowest effluent BOD and color per ton of pulp of all North American bleached kraft pulp plants.
