Green cleaning system - Gippsland, Victoria, Australia
|Source : AgVet Projects|
‘Green Cleaning’ was a three year collaborative research, development and commercialisation project delivered by Government, industry, commercial companies and private researchers. The project has developed and introduced new energy efficient milking machine cleaning systems that require much less energy, chemicals and water than conventional wash systems. The resultant Green CleaningTM systems use low temperature chemicals, capture the wash solutions for re-use and apply energy efficient design principles. The systems deliver:
- At least a 75% reduction in electricity used for heating water for machine cleaning;
- Around a 60% reduction in the volume of water used for cleaning the milking machine; and
- At least a 20% reduction in chemical use.
