Enhancing Wastewater Sustainability in Meat, Poultry & Seafood Processing

In the meat, poultry, and seafood processing industries, water plays a vital role during the various stages of production – from cleaning to product preparation, and even to help regulate and/or maintain cooler temperatures at the production facility and extend products’ shelf life. 

However, it is crucial to pair efficient water usage with sustainable practices to meet the industry’s growing demands, while simultaneously minimising environmental impact. This is one of the key challenges LAT Water has set out to tackle through our innovative, bespoke industrial wastewater treatment solutions which can provide an eco-friendly method of on-site wastewater treatment and recycling, reduce your operational costs by more than half, and promote a more sustainable approach to food processing

We can achieve this by working with you to focus on the following areas:

Improving Water Conservation & Efficiency

  • Using Cutting-Edge Technologies

LAT Water is a pioneer in the wastewater treatment industry and to date has received 11 international patents. We are also the first company in the world to develop wastewater separation technologies that utilise waste heat as an energy input and enable our wastewater treatment plants to operate at lower temperatures and pressures than any other modern solution. These technologies work together to maximise water conservation and improve efficiency in the meat, poultry, and seafood processing industries, as well as provide high-quality results that meet (and in some cases surpass) industry regulations for safe wastewater discharge.  

Our wastewater treatment plants can be specially modified for your on-site needs, and each LAT Unit is capable of treating inputs between 1m3 and 5,000m3 per day (LAT Units can also work together to increase capacity). 

  • Using Intelligent Water Monitoring

LAT Water’s intelligent, 24/7 remote water monitoring solutions provide real-time data on inputs and water usage, allowing you to identify areas of high consumption or emerging inefficiencies. By closely monitoring these patterns, we can work with your teams to continuously optimise wastewater streams should your processes change, as well as reduce your waste through nutrient recovery (which some clients use to diversify their product offerings and support other parts of the supply chain). This additionally helps you stay on top of your wastewater production and gives full transparency into the contents of your wastewater streams, which can additionally reduce the need for external testing and help you meet international regulations. 

Sustainable Wastewater Treatment

  • Creating Customised Treatment Solutions

At LAT Water, we offer customised wastewater treatment solutions tailored to the specific needs of your meat, poultry, and/or seafood processing facility. Thanks to our extensive monitoring and in-house testing (supported by a mini version of the LAT Unit known as the MicroLAT), our comprehensive approach is capable of effectively removing organic matter, contaminants, and pollutants from wastewater whether they are in a solid, liquid, or gas state. We also ensure the strictest compliance with environmental regulations and industry standards, helping you meet your sustainability goals as well as mitigate any potential risks and maintain a sustainable operation even as your products change over time. 

  • Ensuring Effective Resource Recovery

LAT Water’s wastewater treatment systems go beyond basic compliance as we prioritise resource recovery and strive to extract value from wastewater streams across all the industries we work with. Our innovative technologies facilitate the extraction of valuable by-products, such as nitrogen, salts, and other nutrients, which can be used as dewatered fertilisers or soil conditioners in the farming industry. This approach not only reduces environmental impact but also contributes to cost savings and industry-wide operational efficiency.

Enhanced Food Safety and Quality

We understand that food safety and hygiene are paramount in the meat, poultry, and seafood processing industry, which is why our solutions are designed to ensure the effective removal of pathogens, bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants. By maintaining high water quality, we can help protect the integrity and safety of your products, your brand reputation, and the safety of end consumers.
