The project also includes updating the master plan for the ultimate replacement of the existing digester complex. Digested sludge from the thermophilic digesters or Class A batch tanks will then be cooled and pumped to the existing mesophilic digesters before dewatering. Member companies include Americas Styrenics; Cascades Canada; Chick-fil-A; Dart Container Corp.; Dyne-A-Pak; Genpak; Hawaii’s Finest Products; Ineos Styrolution America LLC; Nova Chemicals Corp.; Pactiv Foodservice/Food Packaging; Republic Plastics; and Total Petrochemicals and Refining USA.

The project will offer operational flexibility to feed the existing mesophilic digesters while future projects replace and demolish other mesophilic digesters as identified in the BMP. “The AMCS solution was chosen after detailed review of the Waste Management ERP-systems in Norway,” says Tverbak. In particular, this facility will dramatically increase recycling rates in the greater Chicago area.”. The process provides greater solids process capacity and higher-quality Class A biosolids, and the TPAD system allows OCSD to mitigate the seismic risk while maximizing the use of their existing digesters. Brown and Caldwell and Black & Veatch will work together to deliver professional design services, Brown and Caldwell said in a statement on Sept. 22.. After the design phase concludes by summer … Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD) – Sewer Project. “Polystyrene products can offer sustainability advantages where less material is required (e.g., a polystyrene foam cup is 95 percent air),” says Tim Barnette, vice president of polymers and sustainability at AmSty. The Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD) has engaged a team of Brown and Caldwell, Walnut Creek, California, and Black & Veatch, Overland Park, Kansas, to deliver professional design services for a new temperature-phased anaerobic digestion (TPAD) facility at its Plant No. The MP 270 MH features what Presona calls parallel processes and self-optimization. “Our highly qualified team is thrilled to have been chosen for this project, which represents a unique opportunity for OCSD to implement a next-generation biosolids facility in sync with its long-term goals,” says Brown and Caldwell Principal-in-Charge Dan Bunce.

Ineos Styrolution and AmSty will use Agilyx technology at PS scrap processing plant to be located 50 miles from Chicago. The Class A TPAD system involves high temperature thermophilic anaerobic digestion at 131 degrees Fahrenheit followed by a 24-hour holding period in the batch tanks, sludge cooling, and mesophilic anaerobic digestion at 98 degrees Fahrenheit. After the design phase concludes by summer 2024, construction and commissioning of the TPAD facility is expected to start in 2025 and be complete by 2030. Due to their age, the digesters require significant rehabilitation to ensure protection against seismic hazards, comply with code and be resilient to sea-level rise, as outlined in a 2015 structural/seismic hazard evaluation study by OCSD advising it to be more cost-effective to build new digesters than rehabilitate the existing.
