Request Information

Dairy raw wastewater is characterized by high concentrations and fluctuations of organic matter and nutrient loads related to the discontinuity in the cheese production cycle and machinery washing.
Because the dairy industry is a major water user and wastewater generator, it is a potential candidate for wastewater reuse.

Biowater’s wastewater system is based on highly efficient biofilm technology and is ideal for this type of application, one that requires pretreatment prior to discharge to a municipal sewage system.

The challenge

  • Excessive water use and wastewater production adds financial and ecological burdens to the industry and to the environment.
  • Negative local environmental conditions as smell and space required for wastewater treatment.
  • Scaling issues and the lack of space to expand treatment systems.
  • Discharge to municipal sewage system adds cost.

Biowater adds benefit

  • Reduce cost by compact and less power consuming than widely used activated sludge and MBBR solutions.
  • Reduce high surcharge to the municipal sewer it will become more economical to put in a biological treatment system to improve the wastewater quality and reduce the surcharges.
  • Reuse treated wastewater in productions to save cost.
  • Low maintenance cost and continuities for decades.

Industry efficiency
Biowater’s Continuous Flow Intermittent Cleaning, (CFIC®) solution for dairy processors will dramatically reduce water use, wastewater production, and the high costs associated with these conditions.
Energy Savings- Substantial reduction in energy consumption.
Reuse -Recycling of water and wastewater for reuse.
Effluent Quality - Superb effluent quality.
Low Capital Costs - Reduction in capital costs by reducing the size of the membrane or tertiary treatment.
Flexible - Upgrade an existing SBR, MBR or MBBR to provide additional capacity.
Performance - Improves biological treatment which makes membranes perform more efficiently
