Stora Enso, Poland

flootech stora enso poland reference

Stora Enso’s biggest mill in Poland at Ostrolêka serves an integrated paper and paper packaging business. As it has invested in a new power plant, high quality boiler makeup water is essential for steam generation.

Conditioning water properly can increase boiler efficiency and extend boiler life by preventing deposits, which cause corrosion. Treating boiler feedwater also insures safe and reliable operation.


Upstream water intake from the River Narew is 350 m3 per hour. This volume is passed through continuously operating sand filters.

The primary treated water is fed to three membrane-based reverse osmosis and mixed bed ion exchanger lines each with a capacity of 62 m3 per hour. Flootech’s advanced membrane based demineralization processes reduce carbon footprint by significantly decreasing chemical and transportation costs when compared with conventional ion exchanger processes.

Process condensates are polished with cartridge filters and mixed bed ion exchanger polishers.


The treated condensate for Stora Enso’s 190 m3 per hour installation at Ostrolêka meets critical water quality parameters. These specifications include measurements of silica, suspended solid and ionic constituents such as sodium and chloride.

How we created value by cleaning water

• 190 m3 river water treated onsite per hour.

• Treatment reduces condensate impurities to critical water quality parameters protecting plant.

• Flootech’s demineralization processes reduce Stora Enso’s carbon footprint by decreasing chemical and transportation costs.

flootech raw water treatment with dissolved air flotation Flootech’s clarification process softens water, removes turbidity, algae, color, iron and metals. Ideal for removing suspended solids from raw water, if clarified water requires further polishing by filtering, residual solids are efficiently removed via granular media filtration systems, which use sand, anthracite and/or activated carbon. Solid particles are trapped in the media and, when exhausted, are flushed by backwashing with air and water.
flootech process water recycling with microflotation method Today’s requirements for decreased water consumption call for improved water management at mills. Flootech’s solutions born of significant pulp and paper industry experience respond solidly to that challenge.
flootech wastewater treatment solution, floobed that removes excess sludge from carriers Today, industrial plants are taking full responsibility for the way their process waters affect production and the environment. Fresh water taken from nature is cleaned, utilized and recycled carefully within the processes and, when returned to nature, that water must meet stringent standards. These targets can be achieved using FlooBed-based biological treatment solutions.
flootech biological treatment solution, floobed that removes dissolved organic hydrocarbons from water Biological treatment removes dissolved organic hydrocarbons from water. Flootech’s sophisticated, compact Floobed® Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) uses special, freely moving biofilm carriers, which suit high capacity operations, are particularly tolerant of variations in feed flow rate and quality, and give consistently high quality results.
flootech sludge thickening handling solution When wastewater is treated either biologically or through physical/chemical methods, sludge is produced. The disposal method for the sludge and the associated costs can significantly affect the payback and economics of a wastewater treatment plant installation. Flootech has experience treating sludges from all types of municipal and industrial wastewater systems and is able to offer solids handling equipment for sludge thickening or dewatering.
flootech chemical handling solution Correct chemical storage and dosing is essential to the proper operation of industrial and municipal water and wastewater treatment plants. The correct selection of chemicals, chemical dose rate and mixing parameters is critical and has a direct impact on the availability, performance and service life of process equipment.

flootech floodaf microflotation technology for particle separation Dissolved Air Flotation (also known as microflotation) is a well-known method of particle separation. Microbubbles are created by dissolving air into water under pressure. When the air-saturated pressurized water is released, microbubbles are formed. Chemical, physical and electrical forces cause suspended solids and colloids to attach to one another and to air bubbles. These particle flocs then float to the water’s surface and are scraped off. Coagulation and / or flocculation chemicals are used to enhance the process.
