Cartonneries de Gondardennes

Biological treatment in closed circuit improves paper quality

Cartonneries de Gondardennes was founded in 1897 and is still a family owned business. The mill in Wardrecques, France, operated for many years at zero discharge. But when paperboard quality was affected by process contamination, it was decided to install biological process water treatment. Paques installed a turnkey treatment plant in 2006 including a BIOPAQ® bioreactor and activated sludge plant for complete removal of organic substance.
