The manufacture of soda pop produces some of the highest levels of BOD and COD in the food and beverage processing segment. The resultant slurry is thick with – you guessed it – sugar.
A soda manufacturer on the east coast was struggling with their discharge, and faced heavy fines and/or shutdown if their effluent didn’t come into CWA compliance. Moreover, the manufacturer was operating in a limited footprint, and didn’t have the ability to add acres of drainage, lagoons, etc.
Quickly provide a long-term, easy-to-operate solution that cleaned sugar water waste to acceptable standards. Additionally, solution must fit within existing space constraints.

Tasked with the design and build of the
updated WWTP, A3/ReUse moved forward with the installation of our proprietary MaxFlow® membranes.
14 U70-003 units were installed into the system, which was rebuilt into an air-efficient and space-saving MBR. After proper configuration and training, the system has been delivering non-detectable BOD and TSS levels at each test and all compliance issues have been resolved.
