Simmons Foods, a meat processing facility, was facing a major challenge with their wastewater treatment system during cold weather. The low temperatures inhibited the function of beneficial organisms, posing a risk to their business continuity and brand reputation. To tackle this issue, Simmons Foods decided to replace their surface aeration equipment with side-stream SDOX® systems.

The implementation of the new systems proved to be highly successful. By maintaining a higher temperature in the treatment lagoon, the biological function and treatment capacity were significantly improved. This change brought about numerous benefits for Simmons Foods. Firstly, the treatment capacity increased, allowing for better removal rates of contaminants. This not only enhanced the overall water quality but also reduced the risk of environmental pollution.

In addition to improved treatment, the company also experienced lower operating costs. The new equipment required less energy, resulting in substantial energy savings. This, in turn, contributed to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, aligning Simmons Foods with sustainability goals.
