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.
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.
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 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.
