USA: Tyson Foods dedicates new wastewater treatment plant in Berlin, Maryland
Tyson Foods, Inc. (NYSE: TSN) Friday (13 July) formally dedicated a new wastewater treatment plant at its Berlin, MD poultry processing plant that utilizes new and innovative "natural technology" developed by Ocean Arks International of Burlington, Vermont. The Ocean Arks' "Restorer Living Machine" is a biological treatment that utilizes various microorganisms, plants and vertebrates as a part of the wastewater treatment process. Construction is currently underway and once the system is on line it will treat approximately 1 million gallons of water a day that is used in Tyson's Berlin processing plant. Once treated it is discharged, under a NPDES permit, into Kits Branch, which ultimately runs to the Atlantic Ocean.
