The Need

Aerofloat was engaged by Recycling Plastics Australia (RPA) to design and install a plastics recycling wastewater treatment plant that would remove odour from the finished product whilst significantly reducing the factory’s water use.

The Solution

Aerofloat efficiently designed and installed an effective plastics recycling wastewater treatment plant that provides RPA with a continuous supply of clean water.

 

The Benefit

The clean water has been both chemically and biologically treated (resulting in zero downtime for RPA’s operations) and ensures its recycled plastic products are odourless.

Background

Aerofloat’s award-winning plastics recycling wastewater treatment system successfully installed at Recycling Plastics Australia.

Aerofloat was engaged by Recycling Plastics Australia (RPA) to design and install a plastics recycling wastewater treatment plant that would remove odour from the finished product whilst significantly reducing the factory’s water use.

In plastics recycling, the initial cleaning and separating process requires large volumes of recirculating washwater. This water can become contaminated (such as with dairy components from yoghurt, ice-cream, and milk containers), requiring regular replacement to avoid contamination and odours of the final recycled product.

The Aerofloat Solution

Aerofloat efficiently designed and installed an effective wastewater treatment plant that provides RPA with a continuous supply of clean water.

Aerofloat’s unique design uses its patented aeration system to treat the washwater to a standard that is suitable for reuse in the washwater tank, thereby saving significant water usage and costs for Recycling Plastics Australia.

Aerofloat completed the design in-house and offered 3D models of the design prior to installation, giving RPA the confidence that the system would fit the space.

Results

Aerofloat was able to treat the wastewater to meet local discharge requirements, while using minimal space.

Despite COVID-19 restrictions, Aerofloat’s engineers were able to safely install the system at the South Australian site, within the agreed schedule.

Aerofloat efficiently designed and installed an effective wastewater treatment plant that provides RPA with a continuous supply of clean water.

The clean water has been both chemically and biologically treated (resulting in zero downtime for RPA’s operations) and ensures its recycled plastic products are odourless.

After Care Service

Aerofloat can help you maintain optimal performance of your wastewater treatment system long after installation.
