Whether for cleaning, sanitizing or producing brines, meat operations produce wastewater from many sources that typically contain high levels of contaminants, suspended solids, organic compounds, ammonia compounds and fats, oils and grease (FOG). These compounds and contaminants can cause significant damage to the environment and public health if not properly treated.
Implementing a Successful Treatment Plan for Dairy Wastewater
Dairy processing plants use large amounts of water — whether to dilute milk for pasteurization or to clean and sanitize equipment — leading to no small amount of wastewater. This wastewater typically contains high levels of suspended solids, organic and ammonia compounds, and fats, oils and grease (FOG) — all of which can put the surrounding environment and public health at risk if released untreated.
Keeping the Florida River Clean With the BIOCOS® System
In today’s economic and social climates, federal and state agencies are increasing their efforts to protect the environment and its inhabitants. In particular, they’re tightening their regulations, pushing municipalities, commercial and industrial entities to engage in more sustainable practices. Proper wastewater treatment is an integral part of these efforts, and many wastewater treatment plants are upgrading their systems to meet or exceed these new regulatory requirements.
Two Treatment Plants Reduce Resource Utilization by Implementing Partial Denitrification Anammox Processes
Hampton Roads Sanitation District’s (HRSD) James River Treatment Plant of Newport News, Virginia and York River Treatment Plant of Seaford, Virginia each upgraded their wastewater treatment processes to better meet effluent requirements and reduce energy and external carbon consumption.
