MDG provides critical infrastructure products for the animal feed, human consumption, wastewater, and biotech sectors, and demand for supply continues to push MDG’s previous plans for expansion. Further, as supply channels from overseas competitors have become weakened or shut down completely, new inquiries come in each day to the US-based company. Finally, certifications for food manufacturing for cultures used to make probiotics has been
As cleaning continues to trend upwards, it’s important to understand all the terminology and options in the Industrial and Institutional industry. The term “bio-enzymatic cleaner” is one you’ll come across often, but depending on which customer is requesting it, they may be requiring something different than the next.
Here at MDG, we describe bio-enzymatic cleaners as cleaners that use some form of biology to aid in the cleaning
Well, ok, that’s not exactly how the saying goes, but this modified version seems fitting. Recently, MDG received its third centrifuge to match its three fermentors already in operation. This R2D2 looking device might sound boring, but it’s an essential piece of our custom fermentation arsenal.
So, why is having a third centrifuge so important? Simply put, improved production. The centrifuge spins the liquid from a
One of the biggest advantages to using bioaugmentation for lagoon wastewater treatment is that it can buy you time before your lagoon will need to be dredged. The specialized bacteria get to work on built-up sludge and can increase your capacity for a fraction of the price. However, I once spoke to a wastewater treatment professional that said, “if we need more lagoon space, we don’t dredge; we just dig another hole.” I knew dredging and
Setting the Scene
Does this scenario look familiar to you?
If you work in municipal collections, of course it does! It's a fairly standard lift station vacuum truck clean-out. While expensive and tedious, most municipalities have come to reluctantly accept this as an ongoing occurrence and expense.
How about this one?
That’s right, you are looking at the top view of a confined space entry lift station pit that is
Wastewater and collection systems with anaerobic areas, FOG, or sludge build-up provide the perfect environment for hazardous Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) production. Because of this, it’s not uncommon for concentrations to climb above 1000 ppm!
To understand the risks, check out the chart below to better understand the dangers associated at every level.

With more people staying home as we work to flatten the curve of COVID-19, residential plumbing systems are taking a bit of a beating. Our home plumbing, neighborhood collection systems, and large municipal sewer systems were probably not built for so many people being home at once. Do yourself and your neighbors a favor and think before you flush.
So, what on the plumbing blacklist? As a rule of thumb, if it doesn’t dissolve (and stay

We have heard from wastewater facilities that a lot of rainfall in a short amount of time can really throw off their ability to effectively treat wastewater. There is just not enough capacity and too little time to adjust. Unfortunately, we predict that a new kind of rain is coming. With recent concerns and actions around COVID-19, we’re seeing:
3.33 times the amount of water-related to handwashing
Extra flushing to get non-toilet
With the help of hardy Bacillus bacteria, you can treat the incoming sludge as you go, while also reducing 40-60% of your current sludge blanket. With bioaugmentation, you can experience rapid results in increasing treatment capacity. Together we can help you with sludge build-up concerns in a time where there is no time for other options.
