EA has upgraded existing wastewater treatment systems, designed and provided installation oversite on new treatment systems, and conducted pilot studies for both treatment and solids dewatering for a wide range of food processors including, corn tortilla manufacturers, creameries, milk and soymilk producers, margarine, bread bakeries, kill plants, meat smoking facilities, etc.  EA has evaluated and designed systems for waste and water collection, grit handling, pumping systems, high contaminant stream isolation, GRAS chemical addition, solids dewatering and reuse, along with chemical/physical treatment.  This work through start-up and operator training lowered our customer’s maintenance costs, minimized upset conditions, and lowered surcharges to the municipal WWTP.
