Wastewater contract

Biochemica UK Ltd has won a new contract to treat and manage the effluent treatment at a leading vegetable processor based in East Anglia.

The current treatment process was examined in terms of removal efficiencies for COD. Under the previous approach there was a minimal reduction in COD. After a preliminary study a different approach was applied to the treatment philosophy with COD reduction subsequently improved by over 50%. Additonal benefits were also seen in pH control through the new Biochemica treatment programme.
