The purpose of the research described was to examine ultrafiltration as a means of reducing color in kraft mill effluents more efficiently and/or more economically than the presently available method. The program included the six month operation of a 10,000 gpd pilot plant at the Champion Papers' Canton, North Carolina, pulp and paper mill. The major experimental effort dealt with treatment of pine bleaching caustic extraction filtrate with lesser emphasis on unbleached pine and hardwood pulp washing Decker effluents. Four experimental aspects of the process were evaluated: feed pretreatment, ultrafiltration, concentrate disposal and water reuse potential. The total operating costs, including amortization and exclusive of credits for a one million gallon per day treatment plant are estimated.
