The expanded 700,000 square foot facility now processes over 10,600 hogs per day (about 2.2 million pounds of fresh pork). The renovation and expansion of the former Hormel plant comprised a new CO2 stunning facility, expansion of the carcass cooling area, and expanded office and employee areas. The addition of the new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) also included upgrades to the existing WWTP, including enhanced filtration and disinfection capabilities to meet regulations for nutrient removal and to comply with the newest wastewater treatment (ATW) standards.
The concrete treatment tanks and walls of the wastewater treatment plant were treated with PENETRON ADMIX to ensure waterproof and durable concrete structures.
