About the Solution:
Montrose Environmental professionals evaluate existing operations and identify areas where process changes could be made to increase operational potential. The operations staff, with the guidance of a Montrose Environmental Group resident engineer, then work with management to optimize site operations. This optimizes the facilities and improves overall operation. On the sites that they have worked with they processes manure from three local dairy farms, one a sand-bedded dairy. The site also brings in locally sourced food waste and grease trapping from local restaurants. One of the other dairy related sites processes manure from a dairy and whey/residuals from the adjacent manufacturer.
