The client is a vertically integrated company specializing in production, processing and storage of agricultural products as well as food manufacturing and distribution. Under the different brand names the following products are produced:
- Refined deodorized and non-refined sunflower oils.
- Monofats and other industrial fats.

The client is operating since 2006 one of its biggest and newest edible oil plants, in which the locally produced and harvested sunflower seeds are processed to various products. In order to receive a production license a waste water treatment plant was required to treat the wastewater streams. The goal from the beginning of the project of the client was to go beyond the Russian standard for putting the wastewater to fishery water body (Order No. 469 of the Russian Government of June 23, 2008) and try to recycle as much as possible and establish, if technical and economical viable, a closed loop system.
