Anaerobic Digestion Facility Upgrades to Handle Unique Waste from Yogurt Producer
May 11, 2020
Published by Water Environment & Technology magazine.
A dairy was considering moving its Greek yogurt production to a city in Central New York, and the city’s water resource recovery facility (WRRF) required site adaptations to handle the high-strength acid whey that develops as a byproduct of yogurt manufacturing. The WRRF also needed to resolve issues caused by its aging infrastructure.
On a very short timetable, WesTech helped the facility transform its 75-year old digester complex into a facility with a 50-percent greater hydraulic capacity and the ability to treat this unique waste stream in a sustainable way.
Water Environment & Technology magazine spotlighted the Cortland, New York case study in a recent “Problem Solvers” feature.
