A Midwestern Chicken processing plant generates approximately 2.0 million gallons of process wastewater per day high in BOD, Oil & Grease and Ammonia.

Single stage nitrification is utilized to convert ammonia to nitrates. Caustic Soda was historically used to control pH and maintain sufficient alkalinity in the system for nitrification. The wastewater is clarified in a gravity clarifier prior to discharge directly to a river.
