Polymer Processors required a solution to reuse its wash-water within the factory, for both economic and environmental reasons.
Aerofloat provided a wastewater treatment system utilising its patented Dissolved Air Flotation (AeroDAF) and patent pending Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (AeroMBBR) technology. The high quality of the wastewater discharged by the Aerofloat system meant Polymer Processors could re-use its wash water in its plastics processing without any offensive odours present.
The solution provided a huge economic impact for Polymer Processors and also helped the company achieve its environmental goals.
Aerofloat’s wastewater treatment system provides superior wash-water that can be reused within the factory processing.
The company collects, cleans and recycles a significant variety of post-consumer and post-industrial plastic waste and processes it in a facility in Braeside, Victoria.
Expanding its plastic recycling business meant the installation of a new wash-water plant for Polymer Processors. This led to an increase in the soluble organic contaminants in the recycled wastewater. Being able to re-use the large volumes of water required for the washing process was vital to the economic and environmental impact of the business. The treated wastewater therefore had to be of a high quality to avoid any odours in the plastics being produced.
