Green Waste: Strategies for Managing Nutrient Streams in the New Regulatory Paradigm

October 29, 2013 | 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. | Central Standard Time

Please join us for a complimentary webinar designed to inform members of the food processing and dairy industries about the changing opportunities and challenges ahead for managing nutrients from their operations in the new regulatory regime for such substances. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is imposing very stringent "end of the pipe" discharge limits for phosphorous for the food processing industry and municipal treatment systems, and is also proposing more stringent limits for land treatment systems with respect to nitrogen. These end of the pipe limits will be expensive to achieve with engineered solutions using current technologies for these regulated sources. The DNR is developing offset credits and adaptive management techniques as alternatives to these end of the pipe phosphorus discharge limits imposed on industrial and municipal treatment systems. Project developers are proposing centralized regional anaerobic digesters, industry owned digesters, and the project developers are proposing co-digestion with manure at farm sites as innovative solutions to reduce nutrient loadings on agricultural fields. The resulting reductions in nutrient loads provided by these new regional treatment systems may provide extraordinary benefits to direct dischargers in the basin served by these regional systems and may provide additional opportunities for members of the dairy and food processing industries.

To register for this complimentary webinar, please RSVP by Tuesday, October 15 to Jessica Akright at or 414.287.9311. After registration, the webinar access link and instructions will be e-mailed to you.
