Wastewater treatment and recycling in paper industry
Companies around the world are driving forward digitalization and the paperless office is regarded as the ideal from both an economic and an ecological point of view. The actual development of paper consumption is in surprising contrast to this goal. According to the Federal Environment Agency, paper consumption is at a high level not only in Germany but also worldwide and continues to rise.
In addition to recycling waste paper, wastewater treatment of the extremely highly contaminated wastewater from the pulp and paper industry is therefore of decisive importance in reducing environmental pollution. The specific characteristics of this waste water place particularly high demands on the robustness of the aggregates used. ATB Water produces aerators and agitators that can withstand these stresses in many years of continuous operation and at the same time are particularly low-maintenance and energy-saving to operate.
