Florida WWTP Replaces Methanol with Safer Supplemental Carbon Source

A Florida WWTP avoids costly upgrades of aging methanol-based facilities and equipment and remains in compliance by switching to safer and non-flammable EOSi MicroC 2000® supplemental carbon sources for denitrification for biological nitrogen removal (BNR).

This advanced wastewater treatment plant used methanol for many years as the supplemental carbon source needed to support denitrification for biological nitrogen removal (BNR). When faced with upgrading the aging methanol facility and equipment, the treatment plant chose instead to switch to a safer, non-flammable supplemental carbon source. EOSi helped plant operators plan and execute a successful transition to MicroC 2000®. The treatment plant complied with all effluent discharge requirements for nitrogen throughout the 3-month transition.
