Yogurt Dairy Digester, New Hampshire


A digester on-site at a dairy food processing farm treats facility wastewater consisting mostly of wash water and chemicals from cleaning food processing equipment. An H2S removal system was needed to treat the gas for a micro turbine. In addition the biogas can also be combusted in a boiler.

MV Solution:

MV Technologies worked directly with the client to develop a customized vessel configuration to accommodate the specific flow rate and H2S concentrations expected from the digester. The facility has realized a significant reduction in the boiler maintenance after the installation of this system.
