Wastewater treatment for Kraft Heinz's soy sauce plant

Veolia Water Technologies will supply Kraft Heinz China with a wastewater treatment solution for its new soy sauce plant in Guangdong. This will help the food giant meet the stringent national and provincial discharge standards.

Veolia will provide its AnoxKaldnes Biological Activated Sludge (BAS) solution to the Yangjiang food factory, which covers an area of over 13 hectares and will produce about 125,000 tonnes of soy sauce annually.

Designed to provide a volumetric loading capacity that is up to three times higher than conventional activated sludge, the BAS biological wastewater treatment solution is a combination of the company’s compact AnoxKaldnes Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) and activated sludge processes. This will allow Kraft Heinz to cope with an overall higher organic load than conventional activated sludge processes, while requiring a relatively small footprint.

The wastewater treatment plant will also be equipped with a dissolved air floatation (DAF) clarifier system for total phosphorous removal and biological sludge separation.

“This project is a testament to the quality of Veolia’s wastewater treatment solutions and it reaffirms Veolia’s leading position as a water and wastewater solutions provider,” said James PENG, Managing Director, Solutions China, Veolia Water Technologies. “By combining our technologies and our knowledge of local discharge limits, Veolia is able to help Kraft Heinz mitigate wastewater challenges in an increasingly environmentally conscious market.”
