UK Food Producer stays compliant as business grows

A manufacturer of fresh ready meals uses a DAF plant solution from EnviroChemie to treat it’s wastewater prior to discharge, allowing them to remain within consent and minimise costs.

What we did

Food producers generating small quantities of wastewater, will normally discharge to sewer; paying trade effluent charges and required to comply with discharge consent limits.

A manufacturer of fresh ready meals uses a DAF plant solution from EnviroChemie to treat it’s wastewater prior to discharge, allowing them to remain within consent and minimise costs.

  • Objective

    Objective

    Cook Classics produces a wide range of, fresh, hand cooked ready meals, from it’s new kitchen facilities in the South East of England.

    A cost effective solution was required to treat the wastewater prior to discharge, to ensure that new consent limts were met.

    There was also a need for a solution that could treat the requirement now and meet future growth demands as the production facilities grow.

  • Solution

    Solution

    EnviroChemie designed and installed a Flomar® DAF plant, to remove FOG and Suspended Solids from the wastewater and ensure final discharge within the new consent limits. The solution incorporates a drum screen, balance tank and sludge tank. The DAF plant, chemical dosing and control systems are housed in an Envimodul.

    This plant treats 50m3 to 100m3 per day but is also sized to meet future expansion of the facility; either as a stand alone plant or part of a new biological treatment system.

    The plant is looked after on a day to day basis by site operators with EnviroChemie providing process support visits on a monthly basis and telephone support.

  • Benefits

    Benefits

    The treated water quality is within trade effluent consent limits, which means the customer can discharge to sewer with manageable disposal costs.
