WATER RECOVERY, REUSETreating 4000m3/day of wastewater towards reuse standard - 30% for wash water and 70% towards potable quality.
Environmentally-friendly water purification facility is an economical, and reliable wastewater solution for this leading Chicken Producer
This wastewater cannot be discharged into rivers or used for irrigation unless it complies with discharge standards set by the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS).
An abattoir effluent treatment system that comprises Biological Fat Digestion, Anaerobic Treatment, Compact Biological Nitrification, and Advanced Stabilisation to treat 4,000 m3/day towards reuse standard. About 30% are being disinfected for reuse as wash water at the abattoir and the remaining 70% being purified with membrane technology towards potable quality for factory reuse.
With a system like this the chemical oxygen demand (COD - which reflects the degree of organic matter pollution in water), is greatly reduced from for example 4 000mg/ℓ in raw wastewater down to less than about 75mg/ℓ in the final stabilisation pond outflow.
Water conservation: The single most important advantage
Responsible wastewater treatment and re-use helps to conserve our water resources and improves relations between industries like this leading Chicken producer and the communities in which they operate.
