Schreiber Foods Cuts Chemical Costs With BlueInGreen's CDOX® Solution
At Schreiber Foods' wastewater treatment plant in Utah, mineral acids had been used for pH control in the past but were discontinued due to safety and handling issues. With an average daily flow of 250,000 gallons, the cheese and yogurt facility struggled to meet discharge permit requirements.

Del Monte Foods Saves Millions With BlueInGreen's SDOX Solution
Plant managers at Del Monte Foods in Siloam Springs, Ark. utilized a 14 million gallon facultative lagoon to provide treatment before applying the effluent on 500 acres of land nearby. However, the facultative lagoon was unable to meet the municipal pretreatment permit requirements, resulting in surcharges of $450,000 per month. Read the full case study to learn more.
SDOX® Technology Mitigates Sulfide Production By Promoting Aerobic Environment
The Plant’s wastewater treatment facility uses four, covered anerobic lagoons to manage BOD, pretreating wastewater prior to sending the effluent to a pumping station which directs the wastewater into the municipal collection system for final treatment at the City’s wastewater treatment plant. Read more to learn how the company used hydrogen peroxide and a catalyst to maintain an aerobic environment but was unable to adequately mitigate the odor from the facility’s wastewater.
Side-Stream SDOX® Systems Enhance Biological Function And Treatment Capacity
Wastewater from the meat processing facility is treated using a sequence batch reactor and an aerobic lagoon that discharges to surface waters following treatment. The facility replaced surface aeration equipment with two, 350-HP the “no-splash,” side-stream SDOX® systems retrofitted to the treatment basin. Read the full case study to learn the results.
Jefferson Parish Prevents Odor And Corrosion Issues With BlueInGreen's SDOX-CS® Solution
Officials at the Jefferson Parish Sewerage Department approached the team at Digital Engineering to find a long-term solution for the odor and corrosion issues throughout the East Bank Wastewater Treatment Plant. The consultants at Digital Engineering, headquartered in Kenner, La., began researching methods to reduce odor and corrosive compounds flowing into the plant while also protecting the parish’s infrastructure from the harmful effects of hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Because expensive chemicals fail to prevent the occurrence of H2S, plant consultants opted to use oxygen to minimize corrosion while reducing chemical costs.
