BioCord™ pilot system proves mettle for cold-weather ammonia removal

Pulp and Paper | DATE POSTED: September 13, 2021

Onsite wastewater lagoons at a petrochemical manufacturing plant in Western Canada were experiencing difficulty in meeting the ammonia discharge limit during cold-weather conditions.
