Dairy Industries, Jamaica Wastewater Treatment Plant

Wastewater Treatment Plant
120 cubic meters per day

Dairy Industries, one of the largest producers of milk-based products in Jamaica, had to treat the wastewater in order to meet the National Environmental Protection Agency (NEPA) standards. The main challenge was the phosphate levels, which reached 80 ppm and was above the standards set (4 ppm) by NEPA.

WaterMatic designed and implemented the Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) system based on sequencing batch reactor (SBR), followed by a tertiary wastewater treatment facility to reduce the phosphate levels to the requisite standards and remove the sludge.

WaterMatic provided a fully automatic containerized system to facilitate an efficient treatment plant within the space requirements, which included the pre-treatment (screen bars), sequencing batch reactor or SBR (Anoxic and Aerobic stages), coagulation followed by sand filtration to remove the phosphates and disinfection using chlorine.
