Suhr: OptiMimo in the flotation system
The flotation system where waste water is cleaned of protein and fat before being discharged into the public sewer is one of the most important downstream processes in milk processing. It controls the waste water’s chemical oxygen demand (COD) and its fat content, and therefore the cost of public sewage treatment, which is a significant cost factor. By investing in waste-water treatment to achieve better and more consistent waste-water quality, around CHF 120,000 is saved every year.
