Location: Sheffield (UK)
The Mondelez site in Sheffield produces a range of different candy products including liquorish, soft mints and jellies. Trade effluent is generated from these production processes at 3 different locations throughout the site.
A basic pH correction system on each location was not performing as required, breaching the Yorkshire Water consent limits repeatedly.
MSA was commissioned by Mondelez to review the issues with the existing systems and assess the causes of the pH correction malfunctioning. MSA produced a design specification to ensure that full compliance against the Yorkshire Water pH consent limits could be achieved.
The new treatment system designed by MSA brings all trade effluent together at one location where balancing and a new pH correction system will be installed. The project has recently been awarded to CAP Technology and MSA has been retained to assist CAP with their design package to ensure that the proposed plant is fit for purpose. The new plant is expected to be operational in 2017.
