Flint Hills Resources was recently recognized by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency for maintaining outstanding permit compliance at its wastewater treatment facility at the Pine Bend refinery in Rosemount.
Flint Hills Resources has received the MPCA outstanding wastewater treatment operator award 14 of the last 17 years. The award was presented at the 82nd annual Wastewater Operations Conference in Brooklyn Park.
“We always strive to be among the cleanest and most efficient industrial sites in the United States. We are proud to be recognized once again by the MPCA for our continued performance in this area,” said Geoff Glasrud, vice president and manufacturing manager at Flint Hills Resources Pine Bend refinery.
Flint Hills Resources was among 334 wastewater treatment facilities recognized throughout the state for outstanding permit compliance from October 2017 through September 2018. The company was eligible for this recognition because it successfully submitted all monitoring reports to the MPCA correctly and on time, demonstrated consistent compliance, and employed staff certified by the MPCA in wastewater operations.
The Pine Bend refinery’s wastewater treatment plant processes 3.5 million gallons of water per day.
