Veolia Water Technologies successfully completed a wastewater treatment plant for the Macallan Distillery and visitor center in Craigellachie, Moray (Scotland). The plant will provide an increase in volume production to meet demand for the company’s single-malt whiskey.

The distillery needed an enhanced on-site wastewater plant to meet SEPA regulations for discharge into the River Spey. The system is based on the Idraflot dissolved air flotation (DAF) unit followed by a Biosep membrane bioreactor (MBR). The water treatment plant has built-in future proofing and can be easily upgraded as demand for the whiskey increases.
