Norampac starts up new $5M wastewater treatment plant at Mississauga mill

MISSISSAUGA, ONT-A new $5-million water treatment plant at Norampac's Mississauga, Ont containerboard mill will help the company control its water treatment costs better. By treating its own wastewater instead of relying on municipal treatment facilities, the Mississauga division of Montreal-based Norampac will be able to recover a portion of the surcharge paid to the city over the past three years. The city of Mississauga will also benefit by being able to treat a greater volume of water. In addition, Norampac will reduce its consumption of drinking water by re-using a portion of the treated effluent in its production process. Covering an area of 2,000 square metres, the new plant was built by Cascades Canada Engineering and Projects. (Cascades is a joint owner, along with Domtar, of Norampac.)
