This case study is about the industrial wastewater treatment of FOG (Fats, Oils and Grease) at a bakery. Food processing wastewater generally has FOG problems. Custom Biologicals has a great deal of experience with the industrial wastewater treatment of FOG. In fact, reducing FOG is generally a major concern at most industrial wastewater treatment plants.
Custom uses F-TREAT, our biological wastewater effluent treatment product, to reduce FOG at wastewater facilities. F-TREAT is a bioremediation product designed specifically for wastewater treatment problems and it is effective in both industrial wastewater treatment and municipal wastewater treatment facilities.
Industrial Wastewater Treatment Reduce FOG (Fats, Oils, and Greases)
Client Category: Industrial wastewater treatment. One of the largest bakeries in the Western U.S.A.
Location: Los Angeles, CA, USA
Physical Plant: A network of floor drains flows into a six stage 6,000 gallon interceptor.
Flow: Flow is irregular but averages 35,000 GPD (Gallons per Day)
Problem: High surcharges primarily for FOG averaging $60,000.00 per quarter. BOD was also high and the odor was very strong.
Previous Treatment: The industrial wastewater was chlorinated heavily and discharged into the city sewage system. The installation of a large wastewater treatment facility was recommended.
Custom Treatment: 4 gallons per day of F-TREAT were dispensed into the system. One half at the beginning of the main drain and one half at the beginning of the interceptor. Bionutrients were also added.
Custom Results: After 15 days, the main effluent parameters were reduced to the levels indicated below. The client did not have to install a new system and surcharges, odors, and FOG were greatly reduced.
