Bunge Loders Croklaan: next step in sustainable production with water re-use

Bunge Loders Croklaan (formerly known as IOI Loders Croklaan) in Wormerveer, The Netherlands recently made a next step in sustainable production of their products with a nice water re-use project. Until recently the waste water was discharged into the sewer but now process water is being reused for production of boiler feed water and demineralized water. All needed for palm oil
fractionation and refinery. The benefits were: less discharge of waste water, less purchase of drinking water, less discharge of salts into the environment, robust solution including fall back
scenario and higher quality of process water.

This turn-key installation is designed, constructed and integrated into the existing demin water installation by Logisticon Water Treatment. The containerized purification unit consists of a membrane bio-reactor (MBR) based on the Berghof BioPulse®-concept, followed by a reverse osmosis unit (RO) which purifies the water for re-use. The installation, including concrete biological treatment with a content of 600 m3 has an average capacity of 360 m3/day.

Logisticon Water Treatment achieves the energy sustainability objectives for 2023 in 2019


In 2050, the Dutch national government intends to have no more emissions of greenhouse gases. An Energy Agreement for sustainable growth of the Netherlands was subsequently drawn up with agreements on the share of renewable energy in 2023 and the road to 2050.
