Meister Cheese Company of Muscoda, Wisconsin, made significant improvements to their wastewater treatment facility. Focus on Energy, Wisconsin’s energy efficiency and renewable resources program, presented an Energy Efficiency Excellence Award to Meister Cheese Company on July 9. We assisted Meister in improving the sustainability and energy efficiency of their wastewater treatment plant operations, including design of anaerobic lagoons to treat cheese production and whey processing wastewater and, in doing so, produce biogas, which is then captured and used to power a cogeneration system to offset much of the plant’s overall energy needs. We congratulate Meister Cheese Company and commend them for being a leader in energy efficiency!
