Waste minimization, water management and energy efficiency techniques in the Soft Drinks Industry PROJECT COORDINATOR: Mr. Patrick J. Tanck, M.Sc, Foundation EduCare PROJECT SUPERVISER: Mr. Jan Gravemaker, Aequor Internship Students: Lucian Vasile Danaila, Alexandru Dan Giurca
The European Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) directive is a regulatory regime for protecting the environment through a single permitting process, key aim of IPPC is the prevention or reduction of environmental pollution, is used to implement : - environmental protection; - promoting the use of "clean technology" to minimize waste at source;
Best Available Techniques (BAT) for the soft drinks industry as described in the IPPC directive AIM: to provide a balance between the benefits to the environment and costs of the operators Meaning: - “techniques” include the technology used and the way in which the installation is maintained, operated, - “available” shall mean those techniques developed on a scale which allows implementation in the relevant industrial sector, under economically and technically viable conditions, - “best” shall mean most effective in achieving a high general level of protection of the environment as a whole.
Conclusion Waste and water management in Dutch companies is better developed than in similar Romanian companies, Both companies must implement a system to cut down the bills for electric energy, i.e. our suggestion was to implement modern systems to produce electric energy (like installing solar panels, wind generators, geothermal pumps). During our vocational training we have learned how: To reduce the impact of soft drinks companies on the environment To work with BAT to determine and apply the best practical and technological advanced techniques in order to comply with HACCP, ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and increase profits through water, waste and energy management Dutch companies are organized and ways in which they apply innovative solutions to cut down costs, minimize stock levels, comply with sanitation and work hazards regulations Seriously environmental issues are treated in the Netherlands and the involvement of both governmental and non-governmental organizations in solving top issues like reducing water consumption and water pollution, managing and recycling waste, raising public awareness
