Wastewater runoff can result from numerous upstream sources, such as feed lots, wastewater treatment plants, dairy processing, landfills, and green waste collection. It can also come from midstream sources, such as RNG production processes, digesters for biogas production, dewatering of digester sludge, landfill leachate, and other natural gas plants. Byproducts of wastewater like oil, grease, and fat can reach rivers, lakes, and water tables, poisoning the environment and drinking water supply. Wastewater treatment processes aid in the removal of contaminants so that water can be reused or released into the environment.
The process of diverting this waste from landfills and wastewater facilities is a crucial step in protecting the environment, decreasing CO2 emissions, and extending the life of landfill sites, treatment plants, and manufacturing waste. With CleanCap’s provided waste diversion and treatment technologies, we are striving to be on the cutting edge of human know-how in order to create a circular economy and most efficiently re-use the basic contents from spent products to create today’s needs for human consumption.
