BMA Biotech Pulp and Paper Wastewater Treatment

BMA 500™ is a biological wastewater treatment product designed for use in Pulp and Paper Wastewater Treatment.  Developed to degrade ink and cellulose and improves BOD and COD in wastewater. Ensures that you remain compliant with discharge values, and reduces your operational costs. 

Pulp and Paper Wastewater Treatment

Typically, for each ton of paper produced 17,000 gallons of water is required. The type of pollutants in the wastewater generated by pulp and paper manufacturing, depends on what kind of raw material is used, and the process used to produce the paper. The typical pollutants within the wastewater are wood, bagasse (outer stalk sugar cane), hemp and straw. Certain types of paper produced may also require the use of a bleaching agent, which destroys the lignin to ensure that the end product is white paper. Another issue with the manufacturer of paper is the odor which is emitted. BMA Biotech has developed BMA 500™, which is a newly formulated biological wastewater treatment product for the pulp, paper, and kraft industrial sector.

BMA 500™ Pulp, Paper, and Kraft Biological Wastewater Treatment

BMA 500™ has been engineered to degrade pollutants in pulping wastes such as starchy wastes, tall oils, pine soaps, liquor spills, cellulose, and decrease elevated BOD levels. The product is also effective in kraft and paper mills to overcome adversities encountered during high influent loading, system restarts after a mill shutdown, and unfavorable temperature conditions. BMA 500™ is excellent at degrading lignin and improving BOD reduction and BMA 500™ also contains malodor suppressants to eliminate foul odors.
