Milk, cheese, ice cream, yogurt, and other products manufactured with milk or milk byproducts like whey or buttermilk generate large volumes of wastewater. Through the pasteurization or homogenization process, high-strength industrial wastewater is produced, containing high concentrations of biological oxygen demand (BOD), phosphorus, nitrogen, and fats, oils, and grease (FOG). Proper wastewater treatment is required to comply with environmental discharge regulations or water suitable for reuse.
At Aquatech, we understand the need to treat challenging high-strength wastewater while reducing the lifecycle cost of clients’ wastewater solutions. With over 40 years of water and wastewater innovation and experience, we are an accountable partner for reliable water treatment and nutrient removal solutions.
