OSCAR System DINO Controller Reduces Nutrient Return And Improves Energy Efficiency

Faced with rising operating costs due to increasing energy and chemical prices as well as stricter effluent permit limits, many operators and engineers are turning to sensors and automation as a means to enhance treatment performance and reduce operating costs while limited capital expenses. In order to overcome these challenges, an advanced process control solution was implemented in an aerobic digester in Green Lake, Wisconsin. Read the full case study to learn how an aerobic digester, equipped with the OSCAR system with DINO controller, enhanced digester performance by reducing nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorous) that were returned to the main treatment process by more than 90% and lowering energy consumption by more than 95%.
