Pulp and Paper Mill Effluent Environmental Fate and Effects
edited by Dennis L. Borton

Pulp and Paper Mill Effluent Environmental Fate and Effects with the enclosed CD-ROM explores the most active and critical current research and experimentation from around the world.

The book presents the latest developments in research and practical applications relating to pulp and paper wastewater treatment as well as associated issues such as air emissions and solid waste production.

Primary themes are recent advances in treatment processes to minimize the discharge of nutrients, for recirculation of process waters, for control of effluent toxicity and for other advanced effluent criteria.
