Pulp & Paper Water Treatment

Creating Secondary Revenue Streams

The pulp, paper, and forestry industries are working hard to improve their water management operations and balance financial, regulatory, and environmental needs.

Taking a holistic view of your water resources, and the current regulatory environment, our services are designed to maximize your performance either through recycling, reuse, resale, or simple process optimization upgrades.

High-volume water users with access to cheap electricity, such as the paper and pulp sector, can now also realize opportunities to build hydrogen production capacity, generate carbon credits, and restore habitat to create secondary revenue streams.

Water Treatment Upgrade Feasibility Analysis

Through a detailed understanding of your water quality requirements, we first work to establish design criteria and help you avoid unnecessary engineering complexity and treatment costs.

Operating as a technology arbiter, our water experts maximize economic and technical trade-offs between the treatment approach and equipment selection.

Combined with our regulatory expertise, we enable you to elevate your treatment possibilities and prepare for a low-carbon, sustainable future.

Water Treatment Design-Build & Commissioning

Effective management across stakeholders, fabrication, construction, and engineering, is critical for building the transparency required to deliver your project. 

Our fully integrated equipment supply chain provides you with the required engineering design, procurement, expediting, fabrication, inspection, testing, and preparation needed for any package.

We take ownership of our water treatment approach throughout the entire project and can help share risk so that we partner in our client’s success.  

Many of our projects are delivered under a fixed cost structure and include design, build, and operate options. Additionally, you can benefit from our ability and willingness to provide financial and partnership opportunities that could help see your project to completion.  

Operations, Maintenance & Compliance Management

Experience with the permitting process is key to any water treatment project’s success. Without working knowledge of discharge criteria, and the impact on the receiving environment, you may be unnecessarily committed to expensive treatment limits.


Working with us will not only expose you to our experience working with regulators to negotiate discharge limits and navigate permitting processes; but will also provide you with the water monitoring services required to monitor and maintain compliance.

    Pulp & Paper Effluent Repurposing

    Water-intensive industries are increasingly seeking alternative water sources to supplement their operational capacity. Treated effluent offers a cost-competitive alternative to high-quality non-saline water (HQNS) for many industries and offers generators of large effluent streams an opportunity to create a secondary revenue source.
