Wastewater of meat processing factories, slaughterhouses and butcheries contains high freights of fat, solids, BOD and COD. Treated wastewater must be drained into the municipal sewage system or discharged into receiving waters (river, lake or sea) without any surcharges and in compliance with ecological sustainability requirements.
In case of meat processing, decentralized water treatment is the most economically justified solution because it allows to have full control over the entire process of wastewater treatment in order to make wastewater dischargeable into municipal sewers or receiving waters.
The wastewater treatment system can be delivered as a pre-assembled containerized plant or it can be assembled and installed in the factory premises.
FlotLife supplies meet processing industry with equipment and technology for full wastewater treatment process flow and customizes it to specific requirements of the customer. The system is fully automated and allows remote monitoring and control via a desktop computer or a mobile device.
Although specifics may vary depending on many factors (e.g. water characteristics, production type, factory size etc.), the general process flow for meet processing wastewater treatment is following:
A meat processing company "Nakotne" has its own high-capacity slaughterhouse where fresh and high quality raw meat is produced daily for the purposes of company's meat product manufacturing plants. On average, up to 250 pigs and 5 bovine animals are slaughtered per day. For the wastewater treatment system of the slaughterhouse, "Nakotne" is running a containerized wastewater treatment plant supplied by FlotLife.
