A Russian distillery has ordered a complete process line for dried distillers grains with solubles from Alfa Laval, worth $8.3 million.

Headquartered in Lund, Sweden, Alfa Laval will provide various pieces of equipment such as evaporators, fluid-handling products and decanters for 2013 delivery to the plant in Tatarstan, a central region along the Volga. The process line will convert the distillery waste stream into animal feed byproduct.

Since March 2010, Russian law prohibits pollution from distilleries, making it mandatory for alcohol producers to treat stillage.

“It is truly a clean technology order that stems from new legislation, as the solution we provide actually turns waste into a valuable byproduct,” says Lars Renström, Alfa Laval Group president and CEO.
