Commissioning a Standardized Treatment System at Organic Waste Processing Plant

Organic waste processing converts organic waste from restaurants and factories into renewable energy. Most restaurants and factories have grease traps and interceptors, sump pits, and sludge waste holding tanks.  These traps and tanks are emptied and cleaned out on a regular basis by vacuum trucks and specialized operators.  The trucks then offload at a central processing plant where solids get separated from water, and the water gets treated prior to …
