Water consumption reduction through application of the bref for pulp and paper industry in example paper mills - feasibility, measures and local implications (PAPERBREF)

Objective

Papermaking is strongly related to water use. Substances released from fibres contaminate process waters, which in turn affects productivity and product quality. To control these effects partial effluent streams are discharged which impact the environment and the region's water supply. Against this background, the project PAPERBREF has been launched to assist the implementation of the IPPC-Directive 96/61/EC in the paper industry. It is focussed on all relevant technical and local boundary conditions determining water consumption. A water management concept will be developed as an integrated approach to minimise the ecological impact of paper mills. The effects of measures on ground and surface waters cross media effects and costs will be quantified. The project will give feedback to the Technical Working Group to support the BREF revision process. The installation of a BREF Helpdesk will provide paper mills with support concerning the BREF.
