Baswood Provides Wastewater Pretreatment at Dr Pepper Snapple Group Bottling Plant

The Baswood BioViper wastewater pretreatment system has begun operations at a Dr Pepper Snapple Group bottling plant, which helps support sustainability and reduces costs.

Baswood Corporation, a provider of wastewater treatment systems has started full-scale operations of its BioViperTM biological pretreatment system at the Dr Pepper Snapple Group Houston bottling plant. The BioViper delivers an energy-efficient pretreatment solution that significantly lowers the biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) in the bottling plant’s facility’s effluent while supporting DPS’s environmental sustainability goals.

With digestion rates of 75 to 90 percent, the Baswood system provides a reduction in the plant’s organic loading, which allows DPS to minimize its burden on the City of Houston wastewater treatment operations and increases the city’s capacity to treat wastewater from other industrial customers.

The proprietary BioViperTM system requires 40 percent less energy to operate than traditional digestion systems and 25 percent less energy than other emerging technologies. The system also occupies a small physical footprint, which enabled the pretreatment facility to be built within the existing DPS property boundaries. The modular and scalable system can expand if additional capacity is required for the plant’s bottling operations.

“Baswood’s BioViper system reduces both cost and our impact on the environment and public resources,” said Kendall Yorn, senior vice president of manufacturing and engineering for DPS. “Clean water is in everyone’s interest, and this new technology is a major step forward in our commitment to finding sustainable solutions that positively affect our community.”

“All of us at Baswood are proud that our wastewater treatment technology is making a significant contribution not only to DPS’s sustainability initiatives, but also to its bottom line,” said Michael Walker, CEO of Baswood. “Our system’s modular, efficient solution significantly lowers the cost of wastewater pretreatment, which enables our customers, regardless of their size, to gain a rapid return on their investment.”
