Wastewater FOX provides real-time data on discharges

“Previously, we monitored waste water COD by taking samples, which we analysed once a day. By the time the analysis results were in, they were already outdated,” explains project leader Ari Poukka.

With the help of Waste water FOX, the mill’s process can be steered to lower the environmental load more efficiently. “We are able to identify the root causes of deviations before they even occur. Compared to the old systems, this method is outstanding.” Waste water FOX was first implemented at Metsä Fibre’s Rauma mill in December 2014.
