With the aim to keep water waste low and output high Baiada approached Waterform Technologies with an enquiry about possible water saving solutions at a large chicken processing site.
According to Poultry Hub chickens consume around one and a half to two times more water than feed. With one of the largest poultry processing companies in Australia you can only imagine the water usage bill!
To increase complexity Baiada is based in country New South Wales which is prone to long periods of drought. This was another clear driver to analyse their water usage with the aim to conserve as much water as possible.
At Baiada the aim was to reduce the amount of water waste and unnecessary use before investigating the implementation of water recycling. Waterform Technologies carefully undertook an in-depth analysis of the water usage of Baiada and in turn engineered an extensive analysis of where the water management could be improved.
As a result of the implementation of these recommended changes, Baiada Poultry has now reduced their output by up to 400,000 litres per week, saving them more than $200,000 per year!
Most importantly, Baiada is committed to water conservation goals it set out in its Environment and Sustainability Policy, helping to safeguard the future of the local environment and waterways.
