According to the Environment Agency (EA), the production of effluent linked to water usage is one of the significant environmental impacts of meat production.
To discharge treated effluent into a river, stream, estuary or the sea, a discharge consent is required from the EA. Alternatively, discharge to sewer requires a consent from the local water company, which can result in high effluent discharge costs.
Significant quantities of water are used during meat production processes. Related effluent is commonly contaminated with high organic loads, fats, oils and greases (FOG), nitrogen from manure and blood, phosphorus and salt.
The cleaner the effluent, plus minimising the volume of sludge produced, means the ongoing effluent discharge costs will be minimised.
We offer bespoke, full turnkey meat processing wastewater treatment solutions from design and supply to installation and commissioning, coupled with a comprehensive range of versatile plant and equipment, available for purchase or hire.
