Forest Industry


The Forest Industry Specialist Group addresses environmental issues within the forest industry, particularly in the pulp and paper industry and the emerging biorefinery industry. We organize symposia and workshops, and promote dissemination of relevant scientific and technical information to IWA members.

We attempt to cover all important issues for the industry, including water use and system closure, effluent treatment technologies, receiving water effects and the challenges of wastewater treatment for new biorefinery technologies.
