Elga Process Water is helping Robert Wiseman Dairies to reduce water use across its network of dairies by 25 per cent by 2015. 

Robert Wiseman supplies 30 per cent of all the milk consumed in the UK and its Bridgwater dairy can process one and a quarter million litres every day.

Bridgwater dairy also produces about 400m3/day of process wastewater, which used to be treated then discharged to the local rhyne — however, using reverse osmosis technology from Elga Process Water, it now recovers 200m3/day of that for further use in the dairy.

Elga Process Water’s Mega RO technology uses a membrane to remove 99 per cent of residual COD, dissolved salts and bacteria from treated wastewater, producing water of quality at least equal to the mains supply that is suitable for reuse.

Key benefits of product application

  • Mega RO is designed for energy efficiency, with low-pressure membranes and high-efficiency pumps
  • Low energy consumption means Mega RO has reduced carbon emissions and low operating costs
  • Recovered water costs less than mains water, even including capital amortisation
  • Robert Wiseman expects payback on the £130,000 investment in about two and a half years
  • The company plans to buy a second plant to recover a further 80m3/day of the wastewater
