Our water treatment plant

The herring industry generates a lot of waste water in its process. This process water is ordinary fresh water which, during fillet cutting, is mixed with fat, blood and proteins from the herring. Even if there are no foreign substances in the process water, it must be cleaned of, among other things, oxygen-consuming organic materials, nitrogen and phosphorus before it is released into the sea.
Our purification process consists of many steps. Beneath each filleting machine there is a sieve belt for separating offal from the machine. The process water from the machines is led in floor gutters to a pump pit from where the water is pumped to a central sieve belt. The filtered water first goes to a fine-mesh drum filter and is then pumped via a fine-cleaning grid to a separate flotation plant. Separated cleaner is pumped to a cleaner container. Fat from the surface is scraped off and goes to the biogas plant.
After flotation, the waste water is led to a pumping station from where it is pumped to our new treatment plant which is set up in 2023/2024 and is described below:

The process water goes to container-based MBBR with aeration and biocarrier, then on to flocculation to finally end up in the sedimentation step, which also consists of a container.
After sedimentation, the purified process effluent is released to the municipal discharge line and is mixed here with purified municipal wastewater for transport and discharge to the sea.

This new investment is partly financed by support from the EU, the European Sea Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund.
