The state of the art in the treatment of pulp and paper mill wastewater is it stands in 1971 is presented. A review of both the general economic position of the industry as a whole and the major production processes is included. Such a background is needed since a considerable degree of loss control is practiced within the processes and water recycling is an almost universal practice in this industry. Included also is a review of the water quality problems which the applied treatment processes are designed to rectify. Performance data for treatment processes and systems are presented together with a review of the applicability of common analytical methods to the measurement of waste characteristics and treatment effectiveness. The techniques used to monitor waste flowages for control purposes and as means of recording treatment efficiency are included. Finally, the remaining problems relative to control and treatment of pulp and paper mill spent process waters are pointed out. Research and development needs directed toward solving these problems are defined in the light of programs currently underway. (Author)
