Wastewater treatment

Vion, a slaughterhouse in Boxtel, used to process large quantities of wastewater with a physico-chemical water treatment system. A traditional, high-cost technique. Because water treatment is not one of the company’s core businesses and because it was unable to invest in a new treatment system for prudential reasons, Vion opted to outsource the new wastewater treatment. Colsen designed and constructed the entire plant with their in-house developed technologies for energy production and water treatment. 

The new system has a greater treatment capacity, is entirely organic and boasts improved performance in terms of odour and noise. As such, the new system does not only supply sustainable energy, but is also entirely in line with VION’s emphasis on Corporate Social Responsibility.
