Description

IRDA was commissioned to produce a quantitative and qualitative study of maple syrup production wastewater applied to three business scenarios (size, management activity, products used). The final report will include the underlying assumptions, the results obtained, and recommendations regarding the environmental management of discharges.

Objective(s)

  • Determine the volumes of water used for washing.
  • Assess the possibility of replacing products with others that pose a lower risk.
  • Determine the means to reduce volumes generated at the source.
  • Assess the potential storage and treatment of high-risk wastewater.
  • Estimate the costs to companies.

From 2019 to 2020
