Effluents from pulp mills using bleaching

Effluents from mills using bleaching are wastewater discharges from Canadian pulp and paper mills that are generated in different mill processes such as cooling, pulping, papermaking, chemical recovery, and power generation that also involve chlorine or chlorine dioxide pulp bleaching. They are not generated at all pulp and paper facilities in Canada, but only those utilizing a chlorine or chlorine dioxide process (which is used to whiten pulp and paper products). These discharges are treated prior to being deposited into the receiving waters.
