JBS Omaha is a meatpacking plant located in Omaha, NE. Activities conducted at this facility include beef processing, slaughtering, and rendering. All meat processing is conducted indoors and approximately 1,100 cattle are processed daily.
After a series of capital improvements were completed at the facility, JBS Omaha staff determined that their SPCC and spill prevention procedures should be updated. E&A scientists and engineers met with JBS Omaha managers to design an SPCC that complied with SPCC regulations and the needs of the meatpacking facility. Utilizing existing engineering controls at the plant, E&A designed a series of concrete berms to provide secondary containment on JBS’s DAF building, fueling area, and rendering plant. E&A also recommended multiple spill kits, inlet filters, and updated spill procedures to address the 84,823-gallons of oil and petroleum products that have the potential to discharge from the facility. E&A’s engineering staff certified the plan on March 22, 2022.
