Efficient wastewater treatment system easy to operate for regional food production company

Australian wastewater treatment company, Aerofloat, is known for collaborating with clients seeking an environmentally sustainable and efficient wastewater solution for their business.

Aerofloat recently worked with innovative plant-based meat company, v2food, to design and install a wastewater treatment system to support its Wodonga manufacturing centre.

With the company rapidly growing and diversifying, it required a robust treatment system to ensure efficient wastewater management that could keep up with growth. HSE Manager at v2food, Scott Harbridge, said Aerofloat was the preferred wastewater treatment choice, thanks to its clear design and installation process.

“Aerofloat brought a robust solution to the table. We could clearly envision the end-product thanks to the 3D CAD designs they offered prior to installation,” said Harbridge.

“We really commend the work v2food is doing for the environment. Creating an alternative to meat-based food fits our innovative thinking and aspirations to improve the environment globally,” said Michael Anderson, Aerofloat’s Operations Manager.

“We enjoy working with clients that push the status quo. v2food’s vision to create a sustainable food source for our planet fits our own vision for sustainable wastewater solutions,” added Anderson.

The Need

Regional food production company, v2food, required a robust treatment system to ensure efficient wastewater management that could keep up with growth.

The Solution

Aerofloat designed and installed inline manual screens, wastewater flow balancing tanks totalling 100m3 capacity, as well as pH correction and controlled discharge to sewer. The aerated and mixed balance tanks blended and hydraulically balanced the incoming wastewater for v2food.

The Benefit

v2food was able to meet its production growth and ensure an easy to operate system for its staff. The system was fitted with intelligent HMI and remote monitoring capabilities to allow the v2food team operators and Aerofloat’s engineers, access to the system even when not on site.

Background

Aerofloat recently worked with innovative plant-based meat company, v2food, to design and install a wastewater treatment system to support its Wodonga manufacturing centre.

With the company rapidly growing and diversifying, it required a robust treatment system to ensure efficient wastewater management that could keep up with growth. HSE Manager at v2food, Scott Harbridge, said Aerofloat was the preferred wastewater treatment choice, thanks to its clear design and installation process.

v2food is using the latest science from CSIRO to make delicious and nutritious plant-based food that looks and tastes like meat. The company recently signed with Woolworths and Coles to distribute its Australian-made plant-based mince, burger patties and sausages. It also provides the plant-based meat for Hungry Jack’s Rebel Whopper burger, and collaborates with a number of food delivery giants including Marley Spoon.

Aerofloat has a number of sustainable projects under its belt; working with v2food made sense.

The Aerofloat Solution

Aerofloat designed and installed inline manual screens, wastewater flow balancing tanks totalling 100m3 capacity, as well as pH correction and controlled discharge to sewer. The aerated and mixed balance tanks blended and hydraulically balanced the incoming wastewater for v2food.

The system was fitted with intelligent HMI and remote monitoring capabilities to allow the v2food team operators access to the system even when not on site. It also ensures v2food can call on Aerofloat’s engineers in Sydney to identify issues and manage the system remotely if required.

“Aerofloat’s system is simple to operate — we’ve also had Aerofloat’s engineers down to service the system every few months with excellent results. Having that ongoing relationship is also a great way for our operators to upskill and to also understand the mechanics of the system,” said Harbridge.

“Being in Wodonga, it’s nice to know we can call on Aerofloat’s expertise in Sydney via remote login if needed,” he added.

The Results

Aerofloat’s system is simple to operate and its engineers have serviced system every few months with excellent results. Services also allow v2food operators the opportunity to refresh their training.

Recent testing results have confirmed that the system is producing wastewater well in spec, great news for v2food.
