MilliporeSigma inaugurates new onsite industrial water treatment plant

Oct. 8, 2020

MilliporeSigma recently inaugurated a $14.4 million industrial water treatment plant at its Jaffrey, New Hampshire, location. The upgraded system incorporates advanced technology and complies with town-issued industrial water discharge permits that will become effective later this year. The plant is the first of MilliporeSigma's facilities worldwide to use anaerobic digestion, which treats biodegradable waste and is widely employed as a renewable energy source.

MilliporeSigma's new, industrial water treatment plant reduces the load on the town treatment works, while also supporting future growth at the company's Jaffrey facility.

"This investment reflects MilliporeSigma's commitment to environmental sustainability, to the town of Jaffrey and to the surrounding communities in New Hampshire,” said Chris Ross, interim CEO, MilliporeSigma.

MilliporeSigma in Jaffrey produces technologies and tools for biopharmaceutical manufacturing, and supplies products that are used in the research and development of vaccines for Covid-19. Water from the company's onsite treatment plant feeds into the town's wastewater facility, where it receives final treatment. MilliporeSigma's pre-treated water measures well below Industrial Discharge Permit limits, thereby assisting the town in its discharge compliance. The company is evaluating the possibility of re-using the treated process water in its Jaffrey production operations, which would be a first in New Hampshire.
