Case Study: Garlic Processor


Courtesy of Integrated Engineers Inc.

Utilizing Bio System’s Microbes and Aeromix Systems to develop a stable biomass and eliminate odors from a food processing pond.
A California garlic processor had a persistent odor problem with their wastewater pond and had been under increased scrutiny from the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) as well as the Air District to reduce the pond odors. The odors emanating from this pond were due to insufficient biodegradation, low pH, and low dissolved oxygen. To compound the problem, the facility has increased production substantially over the years resulting in higher Biological oxygen Demand (BOD) loading to the pond. The facility found themselves limited in their ability to expand production by the local regulators as well as an inability to purchase more land from an adjacent farmer due directly to the odors.
