TIANJIN, China - Veolia Water Technologies Chinahas won a contract with alcoholic drink producer Shanghai Bacchus Limited Company (Bacchus) to design and build full turnkey wastewater treatment plants for two of Bacchus’s new greenfield factories in Tianjin and Chengdu, China.

Bacchus manufactures the RIO Alcopop series. Wastewater generated from food & beverage industry processing operations contains high concentrations of biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), and suspended solids.

The plants will integrate several of Veolia’s technologies – including the Biothane Advanced Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB), AnoxKaldnes Biological Activated Sludge (BAS), as well as tertiary and sludge treatments.

Veolia said the UASB reactor is particularly suitable for treatment of food and beverage-type effluents, ensuring that local regulatory standards for wastewater discharge are met.

James Peng, solutions director, Veolia Water Technologies in China, said: “This is our first partnership with Bacchus in China. Our suite of water and wastewater solutions offers maximum technical advantages for our clients, and we look forward to recommending our anaerobic technologies to more Food & Beverage manufacturers operating in this region.”
