by:Yufengling     2020-07-05
Nestlé dairy plant, located in Garden Road Town, moselbay, has found a way to reduce dependence on municipal water by extracting moisture from milk.
By using an evaporation process at a new wastewater treatment plant on site, about 47 cans of water will now be recovered from milk every week.
Water is reused for various purposes in the facility.
The factory puts about 400 liters of fresh milk every day to produce milk powder, condensed milk and other dairy products.
Milk contains an average of 88% of water.
Waste treatment plants follow Nestlé\'s factories in Mexico, India and China, which have fully implemented the \"zero water\" technology.
With the severe drought in West Cape and the rest of the country, the Minister of Water and Health, Gugile Nkwinti, mentioned that he wanted to turn the factory into a \"big story\" with President Cyril ramafusa \".
An apparently impressive Nkwinti unveiled the plant on Tuesday.

Nkwinti visited the locally manufactured and installed wastewater treatment plant, which is several meters away from the main plant and is under the responsibility of local employee Fred Huysen.

Huysen explained that milk is stored in a large tank under the factory and then moved to a fully enclosed large blue tank at the right temperature, called a biogas digester for two days
