High-Strength Food Processing Wastewater Treatment Using Anaerobic Membrane Bioreactor (An MBR) Technology

High-strength organic content wastewater with high suspended solids and high fat, oil and grease (FOG) from Ken’s Foods salad dressing and BBQ sauce production plant in Marlborough, MA, USA has been successfully treated for over seven years in ADI Systems’ anaerobic membrane bioreactor (ADI-AnMBR). The system produces a consistent, high-quality effluent with non-detectable TSS concentrations, and has not needed any membrane replacement. Average COD/BOD removals are greater than 99.3% / 99.9%, respectively. The innovative ADI-AnMBR technology is proven to be a stable anaerobic process with a compact footprint that maximizes biogas production.
