Efficient water use

The work on reducing the use of fresh water primarily focuses on indirectly reducing the use of energy and reducing the amount of wastewater that needs to be treated. Work on optimising the use of water is ongoing.

Local authorities are setting extensive requirements on the quality of wastewater, which is checked by monitoring the content of nitrogen and the Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) content.

Five of the Group’s plants currently have their own treatment plants that treat wastewater from the slaughtering and processing of chicken.

The diagram above display water use per kg chicken product. Reported data for 2018 cover the following facilities: Aars, Farre, Valla, Lieto, Stokke, Jaeren and Manor Farm, together accounting for approximately 95 percent of Scandi Standard’s total production 2018. Reported data for 2016 and 2017 include the same facilities without Manor Farm.
