In 1997, DaimlerChrysler Corporation announced plans to construct a new automotive assembly plant in Toledo, OH to replace their aging Toledo (Parkway) Assembly Plant. From the concept stage of the project, the goal of the wastewater treatment facility for the Toledo North Assembly Plant (TNAP) was to integrate environmental aspects of the operation with sound business decisions to reduce the amount of sludge disposed in landfills in a safe, simple, and efficient manner.

This paper examines the methodology for the selection of the equipment ultimately chosen for this purpose, the economics of the selection, and the initial performance of the installed system.
