Flavours & Fragrances

However the sector is improving the internal processes over and over, leading to less water and energy consumption, wastewater remains an important factor.

Pilot testing on different types of wastewater from flavour & fragrances plants learned that anaerobic treatment is the best way of dealing with it. Not only will it reduce costs for aeration and sludge refusal, it will result in renewable energy.

A process based on citrus fruits results in a different composition of the wastewater as a process based on wood or herbs does.
By sampling and lab tests the exact composition of the wastewater can be determined.

By on-site pilot testing, long term results become available, which provide details for the design a full scale plant. By implementing a full scale plant, wastewater costs will drop and renewable energy will be produced.
