Canpack improves effluent treatment at Indian plant

Beverage canmaker Canpack Group is commissioning a new effluent treatment facility at its canmaking plant, at Aurangabad in India.

The Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) plant, supplied by Italian company Cie, makes use of a combination of technologies, including chemical neutralisation, ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis and evaporation. It is the third ZLD installed by Cie, following others installed for Bevcan in Angola and Consolidated Can Manufacturing Co. in Saudi Arabia.

The equipment is used to treat waste water produced during can washing. It ensures that up to 98 per cent of water in effluent streams from the washers is reused.
