Waste Water Treatment Plant

Egg Processing Facility, Victoria


This food processing company had high strength wastewater from its egg processing facility creating odour and disposal issues. Previous treatment technologies had failed, and a sensitive local environment required an effective solution that was economical to run and able to be operated without additional plant personnel.

Project Summary

  • Plant was custom designed for high strength load.
  • Problematic waste foamed and difficult to treat, high strength and refractory in nature.
  • Aqueous BioRotor technology reduced nutrient loadings by 95% resulting in irrigable water.
  • Previously added “enzymes” and other costly adjunct materials were eliminated from the process resulting in large operational savings.
  • Simple operation means existing plant personnel can operate the plant with no additional manning or technical requirement.
  • Unattended automatic operation.
  • Plant fitted with mobile auto dialler for alarm condition monitoring.

Project Specifics

  • Location: Victoria
  • Up to 30,000 lpd of wastewater from egg processing facility
