Return to Cleaner Production

CWW Meat Industry Review

In 2006, JJC were commissioned by City West Water (CWW), EPA Victoria and Sustainability Victoria to undertake a review of water and energy use at seven meat industry sites within the CWW catchment area. Utilising Cleaner Production principles and methodologies, JJC identified a range of opportunities to reduce water consumption, reduce load to sewer and educe energy consumption at the abattoir and rendering sites.The most attractive options were developed into specific projects that CWW and site management were able to progress in partnership. The project’s success was due in part to JJC’s inherent understanding of process industries and waste management and our ability to gather relevant, detailed information in a short period of time.
