A complex for ultrafiltration was installed in the whey processing section, which will allow the processing of whey. The total production capacity of the new equipment will be 10 tons of dry whey protein concentrate per day.
Neil Starrock, president of PepsiCo Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Transcaucasia and Central Asia, said the development of whey processing is an important technological solution that will contribute to the expansion of waste-free production in the enterprise.
“It will allow us to increase the life cycle of dairy raw materials and will make it possible to use products obtained as a result of processing whey for the production of new products both inside the company and in other food industries. The resulting whey protein concentrate can be used for the production of modern dairy and functional products - yoghurt, sports nutrition and others," Starrock said.
The second event was the launch of treatment facilities with a capacity of 2,600 cubic meters per day.
PepsiCo said it strives to maximize the energy efficiency of its facilities and minimize the impact on the environment. Local treatment facilities will significantly reduce the environmental burden of the enterprise on the sewerage network of the city of Rubtsovsk and thereby improve the quality of life of citizens, Starrock said.
Governor of the Altai Territory, Viktor Tomenko, expressed support for the company's projects and further expansion.
