We seamlessly integrate leading CMMS software with our proprietary PC&M system, consolidating all your O&M information into one easily accessible central location.

Built-In SDS Management Promotes Safe and Effective Response

Immediate access to up-to-date chemical safety data sheets (SDS) is crucial for safe and efficient plant operations. To meet this need, we partner with a top-tier SDS management solutions provider, seamlessly integrating their extensive database of safety data sheets with our proprietary PC&M system, creating a single point for all your critical safety information.

Project Highlights

Design, Build, and O&M Services for Global Biopharmaceutical Innovator

For one of the longest running projects in our project portfolio, our experts managed the design, construction, and operations of a large-scale cell culture wastewater pretreatment plant for a global biopharmaceutical leader. The plant utilizes equalization, neutralization, and sequenced batch reactor (SBR) processes to treat a complex medicinal manufacturing waste stream, as well as wastewater from utility buildings and cooling towers.

Wastewater Pretreatment System O&M for Global Food Services Company

For over a decade, we operated a wastewater pretreatment system at one of the world's largest poultry product manufacturing facilities. Our specialists provide 24/7 support for a system that collects and pretreats process wastewater and stormwater runoff. This system employs a Modified Ludzack-Ettinger (MLE) activated sludge process for industrial wastewater treatment, earning multiple performance awards during our tenure.

Facility Start-up and Long-term O&M for Leachate Treatment Plant

Our licensed technicians and operators facilitated the start-up and commissioning of a new leachate treatment plant for a leading U.S. waste processing provider. We continue to deliver outsourced O&M services to manage leachate from an active landfill. The system incorporates multiple treatment technologies, including moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR), membrane bioreactor (MBR), reverse osmosis (RO), ion exchange (IX), and evaporation. Treated effluent is re-mineralized before discharge to surface waters.

Unique Municipal-type Arrangement for a Large Chemical Manufacturing Industrial Park

For nearly two decades, we've operated the industrial wastewater treatment plant at the Charleston International Manufacturing Center at Bushy Park. Wastewater originates from multiple chemical manufacturing facilities, including a sanitary component. Our 24/7 operations team includes a certified laboratory conducting up to 350 weekly tests, many focused on process control and influent monitoring.
