Bayer Conserves One Million Gallons of Water through Wastewater Treatment Process at Shawnee Headquarters

trace amounts of organic contaminants.  The Shawnee facility has historically not exceeded government allowable discharge concentrations in wastewater, but Bayer, as a responsible corporate citizen, still felt it imperative to undertake this process.

With the new treatment system, the process filters water through carbon adsorption tanks where any organic contaminants are removed.  The treated wastewater is then transferred directly into the Shawnee facility's cooling towers where it is used for office building temperature control and process temperature control in the production facility.  This process modification reduces Bayer's need for using city water for make up to the cooling towers and also reduces the volume of wastewater sent to the local municipal treatment plant.

Previously, wastewater from the manufacturing process was only treated by adjusting its pH level.  After tests were conducted to confirm the wastewater was within the proper pH range, it was sent down drains into the municipal sewer system for further treatment at the local municipal treatment plant.

The Bayer HealthCare Animal Health Division has consistently received accolades for its environmental commitment.  Since 1998, Bayer's Shawnee facility has received the "Gold Award" from the Kansas Water Environment Federation.  The Johnson County Environmental Department, which oversees environmental issues in the region, has recognized the Shawnee facility with the "Environmental Excellence Award" each year since 2005.

"Looking at the protection of our region's natural resources, Bayer's installation of this new wastewater treatment system has created a forward-thinking environmental model for all businesses in our area," said C. Edward Peterson, first district commissioner for Johnson County, Kan. who joined Bayer employees at the Animal Health Division U.S. headquarters on the company's Global Safety Day.
