The wastewater treatment solutions have been implemented by dairy processing plants with a wide range of wastewater flows, across the US and in Europe. Read the full story in Cheese Market News

As dairy manufactureres are looking for ways to lower operating costs and limit the environmental impact of milk processing, making the most out of waste and wastewater makes financial sense. Wastewater treatment allows to comply with discharge regulations, it certainly allows reducing the water and energy footprint of  the production process. Biological wastewater treatment and water polishing is used to help dairy companies to process wastewater back into the process or drinking water. Anaerobic digestion of wastewater allows to capure methane gas used to fuel cogenerators producing heat and power, impacting the energy bill. Biosolids generated from the treatment process are high in nutrients and can be valorized as fertilizers for agriculture. Waterleau USA and Krofta DAF have a track record in developing tailor-made solutions for global as well as for local dairy processors. Kraft, Unilever, Green Whey Industries use Waterleau and Krofta anaerobic and aerobic water treatment technologies in larger production plants. But smaller, flexible and even rental treatment units are available to treat smaller or fluctuating wastewater flows, meeting compliance issues and saving on water. Waterleau USA even offers modular and portable anaerobic digestion reactors bring anaerobic treatment and the befenits of biogas recovery within reach of smaller dairy companies.
