A long-term client had a facility with compliance issues. They were particularly struggling with high ammonia levels due to urea in the waste stream. The facility’s effluent is primarily composed of storm water runoff from the parking lot area and flows to an Environmental Control Pond (ECP). When the ECP was designed and installed it was not intended to treat ammonia.
IFM took laboratory and flow data from the waste stream to design a trailer mounted pilot treatment system to remove ammonia.
As a result of the success of the trial, IFM designed and constructed a modular treatment system to reduce ammonia. Built inside two 40’ shipping containers, a 15,000 GPD UF/RO system was built and shipped to the site.
The system is climate controlled, fully automated and can be viewed and manipulated online. Our client has ordered a second system and is looking at other facilities where this type of technology can be employed to transform their facility’s effluent water into compliance.
