Large Meat Processor Exceeds Wastewater Treatment Regulations Using Existing Facilities

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

CUMBERLAND, RI, APRIL 15, 2012: Wastewater from a meat processing plant is a complex mixure of all sorts containing excrements, blood, cleaning and flushing water as well as wastewater from hygiene systems. Nordfjord Kjott was no different. Nordfjord was having compliance issues with effluent equivalent to the sewage of 35,000 inhabitants being discharged to the municipality.

After trying a variety of wastewater treatment options, Nordfjord Kjott decided on the Biowater CMFF®. The Biowater CMFF® process reduces the effluent by 90% so it is now discharging the equivalent of the sewage of 3,500 inhabitants to the municipality. The processor now exceeds legislative demands all while using the tankage they already had. The company can now focus on making their high quality meats because of the minimal operator attention that is necessary to run this plant.

The basis of our CMFF® technology is the biological growth on polyethylene pieces called media or carriers. These surfaces provide a protective surface area for the biology to grow. The biofilms can handle extremely high loading conditions without any problems with clogging or shock.

Biowater’s CMFF® Complete Mix Fixed-Film treatment plant has many benefits:

  • Compact
  • Highly efficient biofilm
  • Flexible design – use any size tanks
  • Easy retrofit
  • Remote Monitoring
  • Eliminates sludge return
  • Low capital cost
  • Low operational costs
