Holmes Cheese Selects Energy-saving Anaerobic Digester
The Holmes Cheese Co. in Millersburg, Ohio, is collaborating with Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies subsidiaries to install an advanced wastewater treatment system that will lower biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and produce valuable biogas.
This design/build project is a collaboration of Biothane, LLC of
Camden, N.J., and N.A. Water Systems, of Moon Township, Pa., and incorporates proprietary technologies from each business unit.
At the beginning of the treatment train will be the Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket ® package plant. The downstream treatment processes include three AnoxKaldnes™ Moving Bed Biofilm Reactors for further BOD removal followed by Multiflo™ clarification and phosphorus removal prior to cartridge filtration. The final effluent will meet all applicable discharge standards, including a stringent limitation of 1 mg/L phosphorus.
