Facilitation of Water Reuse Projects 2012-13

The objective of this project was to facilitate the conduct of trials aimed at demonstrating mechanisms for reducing water consumption in meat processing facilities.

This trial aimed to improve water efficiency through a single reuse of hot and cold water collected after the sanitation of a moving flight top beef viscera table for the purpose of paunch cleaning and washing. It was anticipated the trial will demonstrate a water savings of 0.35kl/tonne standard HCW through this measure.
