Total Recycling & re-used plant for national food industry corporation (Luna) Jeddah

NFIC wanted to find a solution for the 1700 m3/day waste-water it sends to the sewer. The waste-water comes from over 10 different steams from a diary factory that produces UHT milk, juices, condensed milk, preserved beans, preserved vegetables, etc.

Suido Kiko Middle East designed an extensive waste-water treatment solution for this factory.
NFIC was trying in unusable to source an engineering company that could design and implement such a solution for the last 10 years.

SKME accept the challenge and started with a detailed study of the waste streams of this factory. Later the waste was split into organic and inorganic streams.
In turn, the organic streams were subdivided into high-load and low-load streams.

Then a solution was designed for the two main streams Inorganic and Organic.

The result was a state-of-the-art fully automated plant that receives all the 1700 m3/day waste streams and returned approx 1450 m3/day treated re-used water that the factory could use. Hence, NFIC restrained its intake of water made use of its recycled water.

The plant entered operation in Nov 2010 and pliant good results.

This was an excellent engineering solution from SKME and lateral thinking from NFIC for investing in treating waste  for both economic and environmental reasons.

We are happy to say that the client substantially reduced its purchased intake of water by making use of its recycled water produced by the plant, thus considerably reducing its expenses.

To our knowledge this is the first plant that is ever designed and implemented in the Middle East for the purpose of full re-use application for a dairy factory.
