SCA to restart biological wastewater treatment plant at Munksund mill in Sweden

BRUSSELS , Sept. 7, 2012 (RISI) - 

After two years of analyzing damage, making repairs and evaluating the results, SCA will restart the entire biological wastewater treatment plant at its Munksund mill in Piteå, northern Sweden. During the coming two years, it aims to secure stable operation and study the effects of the wastewater treatment in order to propose new, stricter discharge levels to be approved by the Land and Environment Court.

SCA started the wastewater treatment plant in June 2009, but ran into trouble in March 2010 when the plant's three basins started to sink. Since then, the firm has been using one of the basins while investigating the cause and carrying out repairs.
