Malt making requires significant volumes of water in the steeping and germination processes.
In order to significantly reduce water consumption and decrease cost by reducing trade waste discharge, they introduced a Membrane Bioreactor and Reverse Osmosis (MBR-RO) plant. The bioreactor digests most of the organic matter normally discharged to the sewer.
The MBR-RO plant was projected to cut potable water use by around 50%, creating a projected savings of approximately 50 million litres (ML) of water per annum. The bio-reactor digests most of the organic matter normally discharged to the sewer. It's projected that this will create a significant decrease in trade waste cost and ease loading on the regions existing waste water treatment plant.
