This document presents the findings of a study of the unbleached kraft, semi-chemical and paperboard segment of the pulp, paper, and paperboard industry for the purpose of developing effluent limitations for existing sources and standards of performance for new sources to implement Sections 304(b) and 306 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972. Effluent limitations are set forth for the degree of effluent reduction attainable through the application of the 'Best Practicable Control Technology Currently Available,' and the 'Best Available Technology Economically Achievable,' which must be achieved by existing point sources by July 1, 1977, and July 1, 1983, respectively. The identified technology for new source performance standards is inplant waste water controls and secondary treatment. Physical-chemical treatment for color removal is identified for two subcategories. The identified in-plant controls and external treatment systems are available for implementation as they have all been demonstrated at mills within the subcategories under study. Supportive data and rationale for development of the effluent limitations and standards of performance are contained in this report. Processes, wastes, and costs are discussed.
