London – SUEZ Advanced Solutions are delighted at their recent win for the Best Dairy Manufacturing / Processing Innovation Award at the World Dairy Innovation Awards in London for the AQL500 Ice Pigging machine. During the manufacture of dairy products, a significant proportion of ingredients can be wasted within factories. Inefficiencies in dairy manufacturing processes often contributes to between 10 and 20% of all ingredients lost in production of common dairy products and have major financial and environmental impact on the profitability of the sector. The machine has been tried and tested showing significant results and saving producers up to 90% in product recovery on a wide variety of process lines. The machine’s unique capabilities, to which there are many, increase factory’s overall production and environmental efficiencies.
Ice Pigging’s Business Unit Director, Matthew Stephenson had this to say about the recent award win.
“This award is fantastic recognition for the role that this technology can play in improving the efficiency and operation of dairy production. We're delighted that our Ice Pigging machine, which helps dairy producers to reduce their waste, reduce the effluent they create, and save more of their valuable product in the production process, is recognised by such an important global award. The Dairy industry clearly demands new ways to take steps forward in its social and environmental responsibility, at the same time as competing in an increasingly price based market. We are pleased that our innovation has been recognised as doing just that.”
The AQL500 was launched earlier this year and is the world’s first factory-ready and fully automated Ice Pigging machine that was designed to EHEDG guidelines for hygiene. For dairy manufacturers, this equates to better product recovery, less effluent produced, less water use and ultimately a step-change in manufacturing efficiency.
