rom alternative source potable water to ensuring your process water is pure & balanced correctly through to dealing with the typical high strength wastewater that a rendering or meat processing plant typically discharges, a tailored solution is only a call away.
Wastewater discharge from meat processing plants will be laden with fats, proteins, blood, paunch and generally split into two streams, identified as ‘red’ and ‘green’. The waste loading can be determined by several different measurements, typically BOD, TSS, COD and FOG.
Many different methods are used to treat this wastewater, and depending on the location, restrictions are now being placed around nutrients (TN, TP). Depending on whether discharge to sewer or the environment is required, Waterform can engineer a solution to meet all compliance requirements along with odour control.
Conventional lagoon based treatment systems need to be upgraded at many sites, with sites being imposed with new limits for nutrients and volume. New technologies are being implemented to improve lagoon systems’ performance along with other secondary treatment methods. Advanced treatment of secondary treated wastewater to achieve potable standard water quality for use in boilers, cooling towers, irrigation, wash down and more is also a viable option for many sites – a value-added solution underpinned by strict risk management to enhance payback.
