Organic waste collection and processing produces wastewater that varies significantly based on the incoming organic waste, which can be unpredictable. This waste varies from dissolved air flotation (DAF) sludge waste, to used cooking oil, to grease trap, to liquefied food waste. This poses a significant challenge for the wastewater treatment formulation as it needs to be capable and flexible enough to handle a vast assortment of incoming sources of wastewater.
Treating this wastewater is especially difficult due to the presence of emulsified oils. These oils cannot be removed from wastewater until the emulsion is broken, leading to high levels of biological oxygen demand (BOD), total suspended solids (TSS), and fats, oils, and greases (FOG).
JNE Environmental has developed an emulsion breaker that specializes in destabilizing these difficult bonds, allowing our DAF-based system, designed to be especially tolerant of incoming wastewater fluctuations, to effectively treat the de-emulsified wastewater. Contact us today to learn more.
