Our food processing clients recognize our efforts in ensuring minimal impact on the aquatic ecosystem of Lake Erie, navigating environmental regulations is not a cakewalk.
Every day we strive for zero waste in our operations, our on-site wastewater treatment and other processes help us in minimizing the collective waste and residual streams.
Our Active water policy focus on sustainability and strict compliance with government regulations. We ensure Biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and chemical oxygen demand (COD), phosphorus values, and other effluents are within range and do not impact the receiving waters. We keep experimenting with chemical compounds for higher efficiency in breaking the effluents with neural.
Our Dedicated team monitors and manages wastewater processing. We believe in a data-driven approach in taking corrective actions and process improvement.
Some of the processes we follow at our wastewater treatment plant (WWTP):
- The WWTP residuals (solids) are treated in an anaerobic digester lagoon and then dewatered in a belt filter press and screw conveyor, before being shipped off-site for land application or land-fill.
- Liquid sewage generated is treated in the on-site WWTP.
- Domestic wastewater generated from the property is also treated at the on-site WWTP.
- Daily sampling and in-house testing of water for phosphorous and other effluents.
- Independent Testing in a government-approved lab.
- The treated process effluent and sanitary effluent are combined and discharged to Muddy Creek.
