Alex Waugh, director general of UK Flour Millers, retires

December 4, 2023 - More than 100 people from the UK flour milling industry, customers and partners gathered recently to mark the retirement of Alex Waugh, outgoing director general of UK Flour Millers (formerly nabim).

Alex Waugh

Flour milling is at the centre of the agri-food supply chain, providing a critical ingredient in the baking of 12 million loaves of bread every day and much more besides - a third of food on supermarket shelves contain flour! The strong connections forged over Alex's 23 years leading the millers' trade association were warmly felt by everyone in attendance.

"Once you're in the industry, you're part of the family," Alex said. "In the world of trade associations, it's unique for UK Flour Millers that we are very much part of the industry. We get our hands dirty." 

Alex's handiwork will now transition to projects on his house and spending time with his family, while the UK Flour Millers efforts will continue, working in partnership with stakeholders and ensuring the sustained contribution of flour millers in the UK, feeding the nation.

Appropriately, the centrepiece of the celebrations was a wheat bag-styled cake with flour, naturally as a key ingredient.

Conference to help dairy farmers reduce labour demand and improve productivity

December 1, 2023 - CAFRE, the Ulster Farmers' Union and The Dairy Council NI will be hosting an event on Labour Sustainability on Tuesday 5 December 2023 from 10:30am - 3pm in the Millbrook Lodge Hotel, Ballynahinch.

Don Morrow (CAFRE), Ian Stevenson (Dairy Council), Anna Truesdale (CAFRE), Bill Brown , William Irvine (UFU), Conail Keown (CAFRE).

Conail Keown, CAFRE, Chairperson of event commented: "Dairy farming is going through a tough time currently with a long period of difficult weather conditions and extremely tight financial margins. But the daily work of milking, feeding and managing the herd goes on throughout the country. This conference is an opportunity to look and discuss a core ingredient which your milk producing business could not exist or operate without. That key ingredient is labour, and in many cases you. Yes, you are the single most important asset on your farm, even more important than the tractor."

This conference will feature innovative and inspiring sessions that will increase your understanding of trends and technologies relevant to your farm. Regardless of whether you are a sole operator or a manager of people, the focus will be on the development of skills and understanding required to better meet the workload requirements of your business. Moving forward, sustainable dairy businesses must be informed, resilient, proactive and efficient. This conference aims to place, you, as the dairy farmer, in a position to better meet the opportunities and challenges of tomorrow. Some local farmers have focused on improving labour and time management on their farms:

Chris Hamilton - Carrowdore, Newtownards. Utilising technology to improve time management:  "We have completed one breeding season now with the activity meters on the 120 cow herd. Heat detection is a big part of herd fertility, when using any manual heat detection like scratch cards or tail paint it requires time to administer and monitor. The activity meter has cut all this time out now just sends me a message when a cow is ready for breeding. My empty rate for the herd this year was only 1.5 percent in 10 weeks."

Ryan McCarthy - Kircubbin - Focusing on cowflow and reducing daily workload: "We are milking 300 cows twice a day on the farm, any modifications, or improvements in cow flow are considered on this farm, even if it's a simple swinging gate in the correct place or the removal of a drinker in the wrong place holding up cow flow. The single best investment we have made on the farm, which has dramatically reduced daily workload and increased the speed which cows can return to cubicles has been the cubicle sweeper. One person can now clean and bed 300 cubicles in 15 minutes on the farm. This has removed a bottle neck in the process especially for those first 3 rows of the parlour which, before the sweeper arrived, had to wait until cubicles got prepared."

Gareth Taylor - Galstry farm - Kircubbin. Outsourcing work to streamline daily work routine: "Contracting out the heifer rearing is now a key part of the production system on this farm. Replacement heifers leave the farm weaned off milk and return at the point of calving, this effectively creates time to focus on the milking herd. We looked at other options like purchasing replacement stock but we wanted to remain in control of the genetic development of our heifers. It works for us."

Environment Secretary announces £45 million for farming innovation

December 1, 2023 - The Environment Secretary Steve Barclay has used his first major speech to set out his commitment to backing British farmers and being on the side of rural businesses.

In his keynote speech at the Country Land and Business Association conference in London yesterday, the Environment Secretary set out his vision for an innovative and productive agriculture sector, supporting the sector to continue to develop into a more sustainable and profitable industry.

Almost £45 million in competitions and grants are set to open in the coming weeks as part of the Government's £168 million investment this year to support farmers to foster innovation, boost productivity and improve animal welfare.

This includes an initial £30 million on offer in the second round of the Improving Farming Productivity Grant, providing capital grants of £25,000-£500,000 towards robotic and automatic equipment, with further funding potentially available depending on levels of interest. For the first time, it will also fund grants of between £15,000 and £100,000 towards solar equipment which can be fitted on rooftops and float on irrigation reservoirs, helping increase energy resilience and take-up of renewable energy generation on farms.

Almost £8 million will also be available in the third round of the Large R&D Partnership, a competition specifically designed to boost industrial research and experimental development projects, and a further £850,000 through the Research Starter Round 4 competition to identify and accelerate new agricultural solutions, funding growers or foresters who have bold, ambitious, early-stage ideas.

By enabling some of the UKS's most promising innovation and research initiatives to get off the ground, this funding will not only see our farers become more efficient and productive, but will also equip them with the knowledge and tools to maintain our high degree of food security.

Speaking at the Country Land and Business Association Rural Business Conference in London, Environment Secretary Steve Barclay said: "My pledge to you is that this government will always back British farmers who produce some of the highest quality food in the world, contribute billions to out economy, and to whom we all ow a debt of gratitude for taking care of our countryside."

In addition, the Environment Secretary also launched the third round of the Natural Environment Investment Readiness Fund (NEIRF). With individual grants of up to £100,000 on offer from. a total £5 million, this round has been designed specifically to support farmers to prepare nature projects that will help attract investment from the private sector.

This is a further step forward in meeting the Government's target to stimulate at least £500 million of private sector investment into nature recovery in England each year by 2027 - rising to at least £1 billion each year by 2030.

Alongside these new competitions opening in the coming weeks, 2024 will see the extension of the Farming Innovation Programme grants to include the Accelerating Development of Practices and Technologies (ADOPT) fund, where businesses will be able to apply for a share of £44 million to test and trial new technology and techniques on farms.

Today's announcement builds on the success of previous competition and grant rounds, with winners already driving practical examples of innovation and automation across the sector.

Defra's Farming Innovation Programme, run in partnership with Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), has committed over £125 million in funding to date and supported 150 projects involving 400 organisations.

This includes Bradley Farms in partnership with Harper Adam's University who are combining advanced robotics and intelligent software to create 'The Fieldsman' - a robot that seeks to drive productivity by navigating autonomously through blueberry plantations to collect crucial data on crop production, growth, health and yields.

H.L Hutchinson Limited, successful in the second round of the Large R&D partnerships, are developing new systems for measuring and assessing fruit tree status. This aims to transform the tree fruit industry and deliver new levels of environmentally sustainable crop production, increasing efficiency and yield while lowering cost and environmental impacts.

meanwhile, through the Improving Farming Productivity Grant - part of the Farming Investment Fund - Woodcote Farming Ltd were able to purchase two 'Farmdroid' robots to plant flowers and weed their fields, enabling their business to produce a higher yielding crop while reducing reliance on labour and pesticide usage.

Jim Bubb from Woodcote Farming Ltd said: "Being successful in the farm productivity grant took our business to the next level. Purchasing our Farmdroid robot with the help of the grant has revolutionised the way we grow crops.

"Weeding by hand has been significantly reduced and we can look forward to a sustainable future, reducing requirements on labour, improving the environment and producing a better crop."

Round 2 of the Natural Environment Investment Readiness Fund also saw the Environmental Farmers Group (EFG) receive £100,000 in funding to establish the Green Avon Valley Project to help farmers understand natural capital assets. Launched in May 2022, the EFG completed its first trade in March 2023 and now comprises 257 farmer and covers 140,00 hectares.

The NEIRF grants can be used to help farmers blend public and private investment, complementing the Government's environmental land management schemes which are designed to be compatible with the growing market for environmental outcomes, where scheme participants can earn income from public and private sector sources for things such as carbon sequestration or payments for natural flood management.

The Government's funding in innovation and technology forms part of the £2.4 billion being invested to support the sector every year to the end of this Parliament. It sits alongside the Government's new farming schemes - Countryside Stewardship, Landscape Recovery and the Sustainable Farming Incentive - to produce food sustainably while championing the environment.

Bühler's Flavour Creation Centre is operating at full power for customersFlavor Creation Center: With cutting-edge infrastructure and an integrated network of Application & Training Centers, customers can develop new recipes and test new processes under one roof.

November 30, 2023 - The Flavour Creation Centre, which is part of Bühler's recently expanded food innovation hub in Uzwil, Switzerland, is now functioning at full speed. The centre combines Bühler's proven expertise in roasting and grinding cocoa and coffee beans and processing malt and nuts to create innovative flavours and future-fit products. With cutting-edge infrastructure and an integrated network of Application & Training Centres, customers can develop new recipes and test new processes under one roof.

Flavor Creation Center: With cutting-edge infrastructure and an integrated network of Application & Training Centers, customers can develop new recipes and test new processes under one roof.

The Flavour Creation Centre, which has been processing coffee since 2013 and cocoa and nuts since 2022, has been upgraded and refurbished, and is now up and running as part of Bühler's innovation hub in Uzqil, Switzerland. The opening of four Application & Training Centres (ATCs) - Flavour Creation Centre, Food Creation Centre, Protein Application Centre and Energy Recovery Centre - complementing the existing ATCs, such as the Extrusion Application Centre, is a milestone in Bühler's journey to support customers and partners to create a more sustainable food system.

The centre showcases Bühler's proven expertise in product innovation, technology and process validation process optimisation, and training and education. In partnership with other Application and Training Centres, customers have the unique opportunity to consider new and different technologies along the value chain to find the best possible solution for their application, from the raw material to the finished product.

"The Flavour Creation Centre is the perfect place to process cocoa beans to cocoa mass, cocoa powder and butter; to roast coffee to perfect flavour; and to process nuts to pastes," says Skeljzen Nesimi, Head of Product Management and MarCom, Chocolate and Coffee at Bühler. The processing, roasting and grinding of cocoa beans, nuts and coffee is now combined in one location to create innovative flavours and high-quality products. The technological solutions available for cocoa include cleaning, de-shelling, alkalising and roasting (batch and continuous roasting), and result in high-quality cocoa mass, cocoa butter and cocoa powder.

For coffee processing, customers have access to diverse roasting technologies such as tangential roasters and drum roasters. These solutions support their search for the best flavour profile, processing time, and colour. Attuned to healthy food trends, the Flavour Creation Centre also offers a new grinding technology, the Pulsar mill, which has been designed to grind nuts and seeds into smooth and tasty pastes.

Innovation playground

In fact, product innovation is a fundamental part of the centre and different roasting technologies can be applied to assess the influences on flavour, taste and physical characteristics. "Customers can try new flavour, roasting, or new grinding profiles for their products," says Skeljzen Nesimi. With a cutting-edge infrastructure available, customers can develop new recipes, try new processes, test different machine settings and configurations, compare different technologies and analyse the influence of raw materials on finished products.

"We also help our customers in buying processes, so that they can easily find out which type of solution can deliver defined results considering their techniques and processes, and match their flavour expectations and product requirements," adds Nesimi. "Sustainability and quality are key issues for them; for instance, they want to know whether they can roast a product at a lower temperature or shorter time and improve efficiency, but still get the same quality. We support their buying decision."

More recently, start-ups and some established producers are rethinking conventional products and experimenting with alternative raw materials, such as barely carob, oats, to create bean-free chocolate and coffee. Bühler supports these companies not only in finding the right process and equipment, but also in developing recipes. "By combining our know-how and infrastructure with the scientific knowledge of our academia partners, we can support our customers in achieving tangible results, accelerating changes, and designing the future of food," says Skeljzen Nesimi.

Accelerating synergies

The collaboration with the other Application & Training Centres in Uzwil provides extended finished-product value streams. The Flavour Creation Centre collaborates with the Chocolate Application Centre team to produce cereal bars and chocolate bars. At the Energy Recovery Centre cocoa shells are used to produce energy. Training and education is another highlight of the application centre as up to October 2023 more than 4000 customers (be it beginners or experienced professionals) had participated in a wide range of training courses about raw materials, setup of equipment, technologies and services.

Handling food processor wastewater treatment surprises with automatic scraper strainers

November 29, 2023 - For food processors, removing suspended solids such as fats, grease, grit, contaminants and leftover process materials from liquids is necessary to comply with regulations like the EPA's Clean Water Act, which sets wastewater standards for industry and national water quality criteria for pollutants in surface waters. To remain compliant, processors often use clarifiers, also known as settling tanks or settlers.

Acme Strainer for Industrial Wastewater

Clarifiers are designed to continuously remove the solids that accumulate due to sedimentation, the separation of suspended solids from a liquid by gravity. Concentrated impurities are discharged from the bottom of the tank while scum particles float to the surface of the liquid and are typically removed with strainers.

Although clarifiers are common, there are substantial limitations when conditions are unpredictable. The problem for wastewater treatment is that no fluid processing or filtration system remains static. Treatment conditions continually change due to variable factors such as pressure, particle size, solids loading and even the presence of sticky biologicals.

"The flow rate and volume of suspended solids in the fluid changes depending on production demands and the equipment used as well as the time of day, day of the week and seasonal factors," says Robert Presser, Vice President of Acme Engineering Prod Inc, a North American manufacturer of industrial self-cleaning strainers. The company is an ISO 9001:2015 certified manufacturer of environmental controls and systems with integrated mechanical, electrical and electronic capabilities.

Fortunately, a separation technology designed to tolerate variability - automatic scraper strainers - is being used after clarifiers and before further processing when reliable, economic, low-maintenance water treatment is necessary. These self-cleaning scrapers filter out both tiny particles and larger debris, utilising a blade and brush that work together to keep all straining surfaces fully effective and free of obstruction. 

The technology assures reliable straining that facilitates regulatory compliance. The approach also virtually eliminates manual maintenance as well as equipment clogging and fouling issues with downstream water treatment processes such as membrane filtration, reverse osmosis or zone disinfection.

Clarifier Challenges

Since the clarifiers used by food processors rely on gravity to clear suspended solids from wastewater, the natural separation process can take a very long time to occur. Flocculants are also often added to facilitate the agglomeration and settling of suspended particles out of the wastewater, however, the amount of flocculant must change. In addition, the 'size' of the solid particulate is also continually changing, which makes balancing the process more difficult.

Large clarifiers must be regularly emptied of wastewater and washed down as well. This requires replacing a significant volume of water or other processing fluid at great expense.

Unpredictable factors such as algae blooms can further compromise traditional treatment. Food processors must periodically clean algae and other undesirable materials from the weirs, baffles and troughs of clarifiers/settling tanks.

"Algae can grow at a surprisingly fast rate, particularly in summer, until it impairs tank function. If an algae bloom flows over the top of the settling tanks, you cannot let it compromise the downstream equipment. When food processors use a high-pressure hose to wash down the rims of the settling tank, this releases a substantial amount of algae and contaminants that must be captured," says Presser.

With wastewater, typical automatic backwash strainers are particularly challenged by sticky biologicals like algae, which can harbour other contaminants like scum, grease, sludge and foam. The accumulation can continually shrink the usable open area of the strainer until it is no longer effective and must be cleaned.

"Algae can adhere to the screen and create a 'cake' that the backwash arm cannot remove since it decreases pressure and suction. It is ironic that you need a relatively good open area on the clean side of your screen for backwash units to function." says Presser.

Backwash design also relies on a substantial amount of constant pressure, which can compromise reliability if not always available. "Backwash units do not operate well in backwash mode below 30 PSI. To compensate, some utilise complex, pressure-inducing tactics, but these do not always resolve the issue," says Presser.

Additionally, conventional backwash units are not designed to effectively remove larger or irregularly shaped solids.

"Oversized solids that are larger than the gap between the screen and the backwash arm does not fit within cleaning mechanism, so remain in the vessel and must be removed manually."

Today, automatic scraper strainers like Acme's are designed to tolerate surprises while meeting water treatment requirements. The company's motorised units is designed to continually remove both very large and very small, suspended solids from wastewater. Cleaning is accomplished by a spring-loaded blade and brush system, managed by a full automatic control system.

Four scraper brushes rotate at 8 RPM, resulting in a cleaning rate of 32 strokes per minute. The scraper brushes get into wedge-wire slots and dislodge resistant particulates and solids. This approach enables the scraper strainers to resist clogging and fouling when faced with large solids and high solids concentration. It ensures a complete cleaning and is very effective against organic matter 'biofouling.'

For wastewater treatment after clarifiers, 200-micron Acme automatic scraper strainers can be used to filter up to 6000 GPM of the water and spillover. After wash downs, the technology can effectively capture even sticky biologicals like algae and other contaminants that are washed loose. This can protect additional downstream processes such as membrane filtration or ozone disinfection equipment, which can be utilised if further purification or pathogenic organism inactivation is required.

An advantage of automatic scraper strainers is that the technology does not require continuous water pressure to keep the screen clean. Unlike backwash strainers, scraper strainers do not rely on a pressurised backwash to remove solids from the screen. Instead, a blade and brushes provide more reliable cleaning under varying conditions.

"The blade and brushes scrape the screen clean, and the small brush filaments get into the slots. So, if a solid is stuck in a slot between the wedge wire, the filaments will push the solid through," says Presser.

He explains that scraper strainers allow the solids to accumulate at the bottom of the vessel, where the blowdown valve will open periodically to clear them out "Since a gate valve isolates the solids collection area, the wastewater flow continues in the regular section of the strainer," says Presser.

Blowdown occurs only at the end of the intermittent scraping cycle when a valve is opened for a few seconds to remove solids from the collector area. Liquid loss is well below 1 percent of total flow.

The blowdown can operate without moving parts and can even perform from the suction side of a pump. These capabilities, which are not possible for a backwash unit, aid design flexibility and can facilitate installation at space-constrained plants.

Unlike a manual strainer, it is not necessary to open and clean an automatic scraper strainer. No one needs to manually blow down the solids. Since it is automatic, it is essentially a set and forget type of system that lets operators walk away and focus on other aspects of the facility, which helps to reduce overall labour costs.

Wastewater treatment conditions can change along with production and the seasons, so it is important for companies to utilise technology that can flexibly and reliably meet compliance requirements and protect downstream equipment. Automatic scraper strainers are designed to do so and can tolerate the inevitable surprises and variability while also helping to minimise maintenance.
