PepsiCo Foods Turkey offers the best to the market, and maximizes and adopts its environmental consciousness through optimizing its production environments aligned with its vision of environmental sustainability. Investing in water conservation, wastewater recycling, energy saving, energy generation and use of alternative energy resources, the company continues to operate in Turkey in 2 factories with water and energy consumption values below the European average.
No unexpected shutdown due to failure occurred since the first operation of the new ZS screw blower in 2010. Beyond this, an average of 30% energy efficiency achieved with the blower helped to significantly lower the operating costs of the wastewater treatment facility.
The blowers operate for a minimum of 18 hours per day, seven days a week depending on the need of the facility. Currently, no protection is necessary inside the Treatment Facility’s blower room, where it was once required to wear protective earmuffs. Noise level at one meter is as low as 70 dB(A) with the new ZS series screw blower. The ZS screw blower range gets full marks for customer satisfaction in terms of safety at work and environmental compatibility, contrary to the traditional lobe blower technology operating at higher noise levels.
