A Maize processing company generates ample volume of wastewater, rich in organic residues. Analysis of that wastewater showed “non-compliance” of the pollution level to the applicable environmental laws for discharge, resulting from high levels of COD and BOD.
Installing an Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket treatment unit shall handle the wastewater load, while generating methane gas, which partially replaces the conventional boiler fuel.
