The Need

Picasso Foods Australia needed a wastewater treatment system upgrade to ensure its effluent met Sydney Water’s strict guidelines. The existing grease trap was no longer an adequate solution for the Australian pizza maker.

The solution

Aerofloat converted the existing grease trap into a pump station and pumped it up to a custom-designed treatment plant, including an AeroDAF, screening, aerated pump station and pH correction system.

Through careful design, Aerofloat was able to make use of an unused area at the site, minimising the visual and operative impact of the new system.

The benefit

Sydney Water conducted a series of tests on Picasso Food’s wastewater once the new wastewater treatment system was fully operational and found the company to be well under the acceptable trade waste limit.

Aerofloat helps pizza maker meet industry compliance

Picasso Foods Australia required an upgrade to its existing wastewater treatment system to ensure industry compliance. Thoughtful design by Aerofloat ensured a small physical footprint for the new wastewater system at the site.

Picasso Foods Australia is a food manufacturer of fresh-prepared foods such as pizzas. Due to rapid growth over recent years, its wastewater treatment system required an upgrade. The original grease trap installed no longer ensured the company met Sydney Water’s discharge regulations – in particular, the suspended solids and pH levels.

Aerofloat was able to convert the existing grease trap into a pump station, pumping the effluent into a custom-designed treatment plant. The system was installed in an unused space at the site to minimise the visual footprint of the plant.

Aerofloat designed the solution and oversaw the manufacturing of all components. Its engineers then installed and commissioned the plant, including doing all electrical work in-house.

“Aerofloat is such a fantastic and very well organised ‘family business’.  Thank you for such an amazing job from beginning to end of the WWTP project at Picasso Foods Australia Pty Ltd. I already recommend your company to other businesses. Well done.”

Milan Holly, Ethical Standards and OHS Manager for Picasso Foods.
