Industrial Effluent Treatment
Bio-energy plant in Speyside
Clearfleau’s innovative on-site bio-energy plants are enhancing resource use on food and beverage processing sites, including better management of water resources. With pressure to cut the water footprint of food processing sites, extracting energy from process residues can also facilitate cost-effective grey water re-use.
As well as generating energy, cost-effective Anaerobic Digestion (AD) brings other benefits:
Adding value to unwanted production residues Reducing conventional aerobic treatment costsReducing site water use and water footprintEnabling cleansed water discharge from siteHelping the business meet sustainability targets
Businesses across Europe involved in food and drink manufacture (plus other industries) are being urged to reduce their water consumption and take a more responsible attitude to the protection of the environment. Now on-site anaerobic systems can help return cleansed wash down and waste waters cleanly and safely back into the local environment.
On-site anaerobic digestion systems offer a practical way to manage bio-degradable process residues. Clearfleau’s on-site digestion systems are allowing cleansed waters from distillery production residues to be discharged to the River Spey (famous as a salmon-fishing river). They can also be further treated for re-use as grey water. Combining AD with aerobic post-digestion treatments to remove nutrients, helps with recycling or re-use of the water.
We have operational plants on a number of UK food and beverage production sites and our digestion solutions (with on-site energy output) can facilitate sustainable manufacturing, by making it easier to recycle clean water. Our technology can clean up your liquid effluents by removing up to 98% of the COD load, while reducing costs and generating revenue.
As a British company, with an engineering team based in Bracknell, Berkshire, we design and deliver on-site bio-energy solutions that facilitate greater resource efficiency and reduce water and energy use on site.
