Turning factory wastewater into clean effluent

LLC Vinnytsia

Myronivsky Hleboproduct (MHP) is a dynamic and fast-growing company in the Ukraine, based on the unique model of vertical integration. MHP is one of the leaders of the agrarian market in poultry segment. LLC Vinnytsia Poultry Farm is the largest poultry farm in Europe, and is set up with equipment using the most up to date technology. The plant was commissioned in 2012 and reached 100% production capacity in 2014. The plant consists of several farming zones with slaughtering, rendering and hatchery lines.

The background
In order to treat the wastewater of the factory, Nijhuis designed and realized a complete pre-treatment, secondary treatment and tertairy treatment system to discharge clean effluent into the Ukrainian river. The water is produced by the slaughter lines (+/- 90%) and the remaining water (+/- 10%) comes from the rendering and hatchery production, crate box washers, car washers and municipal water.

In 2010, Nijhuis won the contract to deliver a complete wastewater treatment plant to LLC Vinnytsia Poultry Farm, treating 5,500 m3 wastewater per day. The pre-treatment system (filter, flocculation and flotation) will treat the wastewater from the slaughter lines and water from the unloading area. The municipal water is treated by an Aquarake.

The pre-treated wastewater, municipal water and additional water from the hatchery and oil press will be biologically treated via a double SBR system, an easy and flexible to operate double tank solution. The biological treated water will then enter the polishing system, consisting of 4 Sand Filters, 4 Carbon Filters and a UV disinfection system to discharge clean effluent to the local Ukrainian river.

The additional produced biological sludge will be treated via 2 cloth filters and finally a decanter centrifuge, ensuring the lowest possible biological sludge discharge costs with the highest possible dry solids content. The system has been in full operation since 2013.
