About Golden Flake Snack Foods

ADI Systems Inc. conducted an on-site pilot study and was subsequently contracted to design/build a full-scale ADI-MBR (membrane bioreactor) system that would treat the wastewater at the Birmingham production facility. ADI Systems was tasked with engineering a solution that would fit into Golden Flake’s existing treatment system configuration. The ADI-MBR system was selected because this technology fits within a compact footprint and consistently produces a high quality effluent, as well as offers an attractive payback on savings in current and future surcharge fees imposed by the local publicly owned treatment works (POTW).
