Problem: Shamrock Farms was experiencing high concentrations of BOD and TSS in the wastewater generated during their milk and dairy packaging processes. 

Solution: bioprocessH2O supplied a turnkey installed bioFAS™ Moving Bed Biofillm Reactor (MBBR) biological treatment process to reduce the BOD and TSS concentrations using a single stage bioFAS MBBR bioreactor and DAF unit. 

Status/Results: The bioFAS™ MBBR System effectively removes the BOD and TSS allowing the dairy facility to be compliant with the permitted discharge requirements. The modular bioFAS MBBR System is also sized and designed for future expansion.
