for the country’s leading ice-cream maker, Betty Ice.
Betty Ice was founded in 1994 by the Romanian Vasile ARMENEAN and is Romania’s number one frozen dessert maker, employing 760 staff. In 2020, the business joined Unilever group, the Anglo-Dutch multinational consumer goods company, with the aim of increasing its production.
SIng Romania (SADE Ingénierie SRL) recently won the turnkey contract to design and build an effluent treatment plant at its production plant, located in Suceava, in north-eastern Romania.
The Suceava site discharges both industrial and domestic effluent, which must meet the Romanian NTP001 standard for discharge into the natural environment.
The future treatment plant is designed to treat 250m³/day, and handle a maximum organic load of 3,750kg COD/day.
Given the particular production process and the type of pollutant specific to this industry, SIng Romania recommended a cutting-edge aerated biological treatment technology: MBBR (Moving Bed Bio Reactor), combined with air flotation and continuous sand filtration.
The value of the deal could double if the client decides to add a biogas-producing anaerobic treatment unit.
The project will take 9 months after the signing of the deal.
