Efficient water use
Scandi's work on reducing consumption of fresh water primarily focuses on indirectly reducing consumption of energy and reducing the amount of wastewater that needs to be treated. Work on optimising the use of water is ongoing.
Local authorities set extensive requirements on the quality of wastewater, which is checked by monitoring the content of nitrogen and Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) content. Five of the Group’s facilities currently have their own treatment systems that treat wastewater from the slaughtering and processing of chicken.
