Water Works Help Make Every Drop Count

Water Works Help Make Every Drop Count | The Cultivator Spring 2018

World-class international technology to optimise water use at Manildra Group’s Shoalhaven Starches manufacturing facility in Nowra, NSW, is being installed by local company All Construction Engineering.

The state-of-the-art Mechanical Vapor Recompression (MVR) evaporator will significantly boost the capacity of the advanced water treatment plant, which already recycles tens of millions of litres of water every year for re-use,  and produces methane for energy.

Designed and constructed in Italy, the MVR evaporator’s high-pressure centrifugal fan generates vapour from the product stream to be condensed as recycled water, which is further used in a fully integrated manufacturing process.

Set to substantially enhance water efficiencies when operational in November 2018,  the MVR evaporator is part of Manildra Group’s ongoing investment in innovation at the Nowra facility — which continues to set the global standard for sustainable manufacturing as part of  the all-Australian family company’s commitment to supporting the nation’s industries and  regional communities.
