Vegetable Processing Wastewater


Vegetable Oils are toxic to most biological treatment systems and various vegetable oils are used inside the factory during the processing and canning of vegetable products.  We utilise customised bacteria- and enzyme products to effectively digest organic sludge in the wastewater due to the use of vegetable oils prior to biological treatment, which eliminates excess sludge drying and handling.

Furthermore, depending on the kind of vegetables, a combined anaerobic and oxidation facultative pond can be very effective of which the internal recycling of the cultivated algae is the core design featuring enhanced photosynthetic oxygen production. Constructed wetlands for the final polishing of the treated water towards water reuse would also be highly recommended.

Waste recovery into biomass

Microbial biomass: linking VALUE RECOVERY to wastewater treatment
Not only are water reuse, nutrients utilisation and energy reduction maximised via natural symbiosis found in the Biological Wastewater System like the AIPS (Algal Integrated Ponding System), but microbial biomass is additionally cultivated within the WWT plant’s ponding system. The type of microbial biomass that is cultivated depends on the specific industrial wastewater under treatment.
