Pulp Mill Taps into Green Energy with Evoqua’s Wastewater Treatment System

A large Bleached-Chemi-Thermo-Mechanical Pulp (BCTMP) mill was generating high-strength wastewater that needed to be responsibly treated. The mill decided to explore bio-methane for power generation and installed an ADI-BVF® reactor from Evoqua’s ADI Systems.
