    [post_content] => It’s been a tough time for the pulp and paper industry. With an increase in foreign competition and a lowered demand for paper, many facilities have had to tighten the belt. One of the most probable victims of these cuts are the wastewater lagoons. Sludge has continued to build up. What were once full capacity lagoons ready to handle a lot of wastewater are now full of sludge. With no money or land to build more lagoons and no time and budget for dredging, the sludge and holding capacity concerns have been pushed under the rug to be dealt with another time.



Maybe that time is now. There is more water coming through then you can remember and thanks to COVID-19 preparations, the demand for toilet paper has more than doubled. Those full lagoons are rearing their ugly heads and maybe you’re realizing that you shouldn’t have ignored that sludge after all. You have no time to build an extra lagoon and dredging may not be a quick enough or a financially viable option.

Enter a third possibility: Bioaugmentation. With the help of hardy Bacillus bacteria, you can treat the incoming sludge as you go, while also reducing 40-60% of your current sludge blanket. With bioaugmentation, you can experience rapid results in increasing treatment capacity. This buys yourself time before needing to dig another lagoon. Pulp and paper sludge is unique and you need the right type of bioaugmentation products that contain the right strains to digest cellulose-based material. Luckily, we’ve got just the product and getting started is easy!

Shoot us a message and we’d be happy to connect you with one of our experienced distribution partners about Biotifix® P&P. Together we can help you with sludge build-up concerns in a time where there is no time for other options.
