Career: Envionmental Engineer

Pressure treatment of wood against bacterial and fungal decay is done in these 6 ft. diameter retorts. Wood is rolled in on tram cars, the doors are locked shut and the process begins.
These poles have been recently pressure treated and here shown removed from the retorts.
Water that is pulled out of the wood carries some of the treating pesticide in it which must be removed.
A yard of treated utility poles.
3 stage biotreatment of creosote and pentachlorophenol waste water from the wood pressure process.
Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) that separate the biosludge following the 3 stage digestion. My design of this process is what one could expect in this career.
