Elliot recommended two solutions that, if implemented, would potentially save the company money, reduce solids waste, and would take less than 3 months to accomplish.
Solution 1: Modify the existing savealls to optimize the production of micro-bubbles that allow for greater separation between TSS and waste liquid, enhancing saveall efficiency. The modifications would be low cost to implement for the PM2 saveall, but PM1 would prove more costly due to its lack of a newer-technology pump.
Solution 2: Adding a chemical retention aid to stock entering the PM1 saveall would reduce the TSS for the saveall to collect. The PM2 saveall was already using this chemical, so this solution would be easy to implement.
The recommended projects have the potential to annually reduce:
