Optimising water treatment
Published:  06 January, 2022

VEOLIA WATER TECHNOLOGIES UK (VWT UK) has announced it has supplied organic based water treatment chemicals from its Hydrex range to help food manufacturer, AB World Foods optimise its effluent treatment. The company says the innovative VWT solution has helped the production facility in Leigh, Lancashire to reduce costs by approximately 50% or £1000 per month, streamline process management and ensure compliance with the conditions of its trade effluent discharge permit.

Due to the nature of the products manufactured at the Leigh site, the water discharged from the production line contains significant levels of suspended solids as well as fat, oil and grease (FOG) content. Like many similar factories, AB World Foods operates a Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) water treatment process to remove the contamination from the water before it is discharged.
