Biochemica Water Ltd., now part of Veolia Water Technologies UK (VWT UK) recently delivered a bespoke chemical solution to its long standing client, a leading rPET pellet and flake manufacturer. Crucially, it was necessary for the rPET pellets to adhere to the minimum cleanliness requirements of recycled plastic packaging for the food industry. As such the company required a chemical solution with superior cleaning qualities to ensure compliance every time.
A UK based NHS board had observed the potential for problems when moving operations from one of their older buildings to another area of the building. The abandoned area of the building would be left with a huge water supply system with nobody using it, increasing the potential of bacteria growth. The problem was, shutting off the water supply was not an option as it still supplied the occupied areas of the building. The NHS board called upon the knowledge and expertise of Biochemica Water to reduce the risk of legionella.
A UK council was having problems with showers in one of their facilities when they asked Biochemica Water to provide a solution. The sports pavilion had been having problems with bacterial failures in their football changing rooms and as a stop gap, they had a member of staff regularly flushing the system. This was not a permanent solution and it was a time-consuming task. The challenge for Biochemica Water was to prevent the bacterial failures in the showers without having to physically flush the system.
