ACO to present at EHEDG World Congress 2018

Andy Buchan, Divisional Managing Director of ACO Building Drainage in the UK and Ireland, will be speaking at this year’s EHEDG World Congress. Being held at the ExCel in London on 21st and 22nd November, the EHEDG World Congress on Hygienic Engineering & Design is the flagship event of the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) and takes place every two years at different locations across Europe.

The World Congress gives EHEDG members the opportunity to learn about the very latest developments in hygienic engineering and design and its contribution to food safety, see examples of best practice and hear about the findings of new research undertaken by some of the world’s leading academic bodies, manufacturers and supply chain companies involved in the field of food technology.

Andy’s presentation, entitled “Hygienic Design – Performance by Design”, will talk about the important role hygienically designed drainage has to play when it comes to mitigating risks to hygiene within the food and drinks processing environment.

Highlighting why drainage cannot be considered in isolation, the presentation will provide clear best practice guidance on the need for properly specified, installed and maintained drainage; the need for appropriate flooring and wall connections, and the ongoing requirement for appropriate maintenance and cleaning operations. It will also underline the importance of planning the drainage system in conjunction with the layout of factory equipment.
