Phosphorus removal, recovery system to help cheese producer meet discharge limits

A new phosphorus recovery and polishing system will help Guggisberg Cheese meet its new
SUGARCREEK, OH, Dec. 15, 2011 -- Envirotect LLC has chosen Procorp Enterprises' Crystalactor phosphorus recovery and polishing system to meet their client's, Guggisberg Cheese, new <1 ppm phosphorus wastewater discharge limit.

Evaluation and comparison with conventional technology showed the Crystalactor to be both more cost effective and efficient. Specifically the Crystalactor has lower operating and maintenance costs and produces a pellet instead of sludge. The pellets can then be sold as fertilizer.

Currently, Guggisberg treats their wastewater with an Aerobic MBR that was installed by Envirotect almost 7 years ago. The effluent from this system will be treated by the Crystalactor units to reduce the phosphorus concentrations from 100 to < 0.5 ppm.

Envirotect LLC is scheduled to complete this design build project in December of 2011 allowing Guggisberg to achieve regulatory compliance by year end.
