Delivering Bright Whites with Green Initiatives - Ecolab Case Study

From Organic Waste to Energy Ecolab Case Study (2017)

This case study explores a manufacturing plant that converts organic waste into electricity, green gas, and biomass. The plant saved 85% of its process water, 224,900 lbs in polymer consumption, and $160,000 in operations savings by working with Ecolab.

Primary Functions

  • This case study explores a manufacturing plant that converts organic waste into electricity, green gas, and biomass for power plant who set its sights on finding new ways to improve the overall sustainability and reliability of its organic waste digester.

Detailed Description

A plant that converts organic waste into electricity, green gas and biomass for power plants set its sights on finding new ways to improve the overall sustainability and reliability of its organic waste digester. Achieving higher dry solids from the dewatered sludge became a priority for this plant in Northern Europe. The plant compared two potential solutions. Nalco Water’s FLOCMASTER™ Technology was installed on one centrifuge while a competitor’s product remained on a second centrifuge. The FLOCMASTER in-line mixer provided optimal distribution of a highly concentrated polymer solution. After six-month trial, the data clearly demonstrated FLOCMASTER Technology to be the superior product and Nalco Water’s expertise and service to be the icing on the cake.
