Cheesy Wastewater Treatment

JNE Environmental was recently approached to investigate performance issues with a Southern Ontario cheese manufacturer’s wastewater pH correction system. Their existing system was not adequately meeting sewer discharge limits and thus a more capable system was required to achieve compliance.

Deep-Fried Wastewater Treatment

A potato chip manufacturer in the Toronto area approached JNE Environmental to tackle a problem with their oily wastewater. The wastewater from their production lines was packed with starches, fats, oil, and grease; all emulsified with cleaners. This creates a particularly difficult concoction for treatment systems to treat the wastewater to sewer compliance.

Coming clean about soapy wastewater treatment

What happens to soapy water after it goes down the drain? The events of the past two years have seen everyone keeping clean by thoroughly washing their hands and constantly rinsing with soapy water. But how do you clean the water that is used for cleaning? JNE Environmental was approached to solve this exact problem.

Automatic Foam Detection and Suppression in Wastewater Systems

JNE Environmental was contracted by a soap manufacturer in the Toronto area to design and build a foam detection sensor package to enhance foam suppression measures within their plant. This new sensor package, capable of measuring foam height, automatically deploys water spray and anti-foam suppression measures when a specific height of foam accumulation is detected.

Pilot Plant Automation and Upgrades

Continuously looking to improve our products, we identified an opportunity to automate our wastewater treatment pilot plant, reducing the required labour to maintain efficient operation. We also installed mixed reaction tanks below the existing plug flow reactor and made the various chemical reaction systems selectable via a tee branch system.

Solving Excess Wastewater Problem for Greenhouses

Greenhouse growers may run out of holding capacity for rainwater during the Spring and Fall rainy seasons. Because this rainwater and plant run-off contacts rooftops, floors, plants, etc., it often has pollutant levels surpassing provincial limits for discharge to the natural environment. By reversing a standard wastewater treatment process, JNE’s pilot plant can safely discharge excess water run-off while recycling and storing nutrient-rich water for production use.

Wastewater Treatment: Drilling, Tunneling, and Mud Separation Polymers

Modern day mining, tunneling, jet and pressure grouting, drilling, and similar activities require a lot of water for operation. These industries use water to remove ground material, cool and lubricate machinery, and control dust. This contaminated water cannot go back into the ground as it may bring these pollutants directly into other important underground water sources such as aquifers and water tables. Luckily, JNE Environmental has the solution.

Wastewater success for skin care and beauty products manufacturer

Wastewater from skin care and beauty products manufacturing can be very difficult to treat due to the complex ingredients used. When JNE Environmental was approached to perform testing on wastewater from a cosmetics manufacturer, we were excited to see how we could treat all levels to within sewer by-law compliance limits.

Foam Suppression System for Soap Manufacturer

A soap manufacturer in the Toronto area had issues with excessive foaming in production areas, wastewater tanks, and sewer systems on their property. They were consuming significant volumes of de-foaming chemicals and still encountering issues. They turned to JNE Environmental for a plant assessment and solution.
