    Over $10 million dollars was saved, by an Ohio meat processor, by treating their wastewater in a new way. A sand bioreactor system was developed based on research conducted at The Ohio State University. This university-industry partnership has saved jobs, money, and is protecting the environment with effluents exceeding the quality of conventional treatment systems. Regulators, designers, food processors, and installers will learn about the development of a low-cost system for treating high-strength wastewater. The highlight of the workshop is a tour of the treatment system.

    Green and Sustainable Wastewater Treatmenet Systems begin with an understanding of the soil natural resources.  Ohio and much of the corn belt have shallow soils to seasonal water tables making it important to carefully evaluate the site to protect groundwater and public health.
