Joe White Maltings Ltd is a malting company that exports 33,110 tonnes of malt for breweries mainly in Vietnam, Thailand and Korea.
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 saving of approximately 50 million litres (ML) per annum. The bio-reactor digests most of the organic matter normally discharged to the sewer. Its projected that this will create a significant trade waste cost saving and ease loading on the regions existing waste water treatment plant.
