Around 50 million pigs are slaughtered every year, making pork the most popular meat in the world.  So, it’s no wonder that it accompanies people throughout the day. While sausages and bacon are popular in some regions for breakfast, people around the world also enjoy pork dishes for lunch and dinner. The pork production process is highly automated.

ClearFox® system for pork processing wastewater treatment

Pork processing wastewater treatment is particularly important

The produced wastewater is especially important in cleaning all production steps. After unloading the animals from the vehicle, the transport area must be cleaned. During this process, the wastewater mixes with urine, faeces and straw. During the slaughtering process, it is mainly blood, fat, oil and grease that get into the wastewater. The amount of wastewater produced during the slaughter of a pig contains a BOD of about 300 grams and a COD of about 450 grams.

Consumers eat only about 30 percent of the world’s pork cooked, roasted or as fresh, raw meat. Butchers process the remaining majority into sausage, other meat products or cure it. These process steps produce a particularly large amount of wastewater, as the products are often cooked.

The advantages for companies

ClearFox® solutions provide reliable pork processing wastewater treatment. The ClearFox® DAF removes fats, oils, grease and blood by using flocculants. These bind almost all dissolved solids in the wastewater, allowing it to be carried out by flotation. The ClearFox® SBR and FBBR processes clean the wastewater biologically. The microorganisms in the wastewater grow through regular oxygen supply and convert almost all dissolved substances into secondary sludge, which settles at the bottom of the plant. All three ClearFox® processes are ideally suited for pork processing wastewater treatment.

Containerized pork processing wastewater treatment

ClearFox® wastewater treatment systems are ideal solutions for pork processing wastewater treatment with the lowest CAPEX and OPEX on the market. All systems are factory tested, so every customer receives a reliable treatment plant. Depending on requirements, all process technologies can be installed in ISO sea containers. This makes them mobile and modular. They can be easily moved and expanded as needed. This means that all customers receive a turnkey wastewater treatment plant, with a minimum installation time on site.

The purification standard of all ClearFox® wastewater treatment plants is very high. After treatment, the wastewater can be reused in the company – either to irrigate its own green spaces or as process water in the company’s own cycle. This process is becoming popular, especially in contries where there is no reliable water supply. The ClearFox® wastewater treatment plants contribute to the sustainable use of water.
