  4. Dairy Processing Plant Maximizes Performance With New Scaling-Resistant Solution
    3/13/2017

    Wastewater from dairy applications has high amounts of calcium and phosphorus. This characteristic may cause scaling on the media of a Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor and may cause poor COD removal. Veolia was able to retrofit the client’s existing MBBR with the newly designed Z-MBBR media by AnoxKaldnes, which improved the operation of the entire wastewater system.

  5. Headworks Bio Brings Two Stage IFAS To Milk Factory In Nigeria
    11/7/2016

    Most of us understand little about Africa and less about Nigeria.  Nigeria is the largest country in Africa in terms of population and economy and ranks high globally on both lists as well.  The population of 184 million makes it the seventh largest in the world and the economy is in the top twenty with a GDP of $500 billion.  It is also a very young country and an increasingly urbanized country - more than half the population is under 14 years old and the same percentage live in cities..

  6. Fresh Air, Fresh Fish
    2/2/2016

    Farming operations to plan and control fish reproduction have been around since the 15th century and are a sophisticated, mechanized arm in the food production industry today.

  7. Environmentally Sustainable Waste/Wastewater Treatment System For Leading Snack Manufacturer
    4/22/2016

    Jack Link’s, a leading protein snack producer, was in need of a water treatment solution at its facility in Alpena, South Dakota.

  8. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors Provide An Easy, Flexible Solution For Managing Dissolved Oxygen In Hard Cider
    7/11/2017

    Controlling dissolved oxygen (DO) levels during beverage production is vital for ensuring consistent product quality and shelf life. This is particularly true for canning, where high DO levels can cause breakdown of the can lining, corrosion and even leaking – which in turn can result in product waste and customer dissatisfaction. In some cases, can supplier warranties have exclusions for high DO levels.

  9. Dairy Collective Reaps Green Energy And Environmental Benefits With Anaerobic Wastewater Technology
    9/16/2014

    One of the United States’ newest dairy processing plants features advanced wastewater treatment technology that not only radically improves biomass recovery and effluent quality, but also harnesses green energy from waste streams to drive production processes and reduce its carbon footprint.

  10. Deaeration System Eliminates Need For Maintenance And Cuts Cost For Paulaner Brewery
    12/10/2013

    High oxygen levels in beer will cause organoleptic problems in the final product, so breweries aim to achieve oxygen-free water. Since Paulaner Brewery installed a modular, water deaeration system that uses hydrophobic hollow fiber membranes to remove dissolved gasses, the unit has operated maintenance-free. This tech brief outlines the unit’s design, operation, and the resulting reduction of energy consumption costs.
