Water use in food and beverage facilities

Take a vital step toward a cost-effective and sustainable wastewater treatment process

As the global population continues to grow, demand in the food and beverage industry are expected to increase by as much as 70 percent over the next three decades according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Corresponding increases in wastewater generation will place significant strain on existing pretreatment system, or in some cases, overwhelm the municipal wastewater infrastructure. Considering increasing global water stress, it’s more important than ever to adopt sustainable and efficient production practices to meet increased regulations and keep water sources clean.

Facts on F&B processing operations

Water use in food and beverage facilities

The food and beverage processing industry is positioned to grow at a rate of 8.7 percent through 2026, resulting in $8.9 trillion market size. That doesn’t come without an increased use of water, though. For example, ice cream produces an average of 1.3 gallons of wastewater per gallon of product, while apples and apricots will produce 500,000 gallons of wastewater flow per ton. Creating a water-resilient food & beverage production facility will save water resources and money.

Benefits of water reuse in F&B processing facilities

Epic Cleantec’s innovative wastewater reuse technology and resource recovery solutions can help address your facility’s environmental challenges and reduce water costs while enhancing process efficiency and improving regulatory compliance.

Our advanced wastewater treatment systems will safely treat wastewater that can then be discharged or reused for non-potable purposes.

The treatment process reduces high levels of fats, oils, and grease (FOG), suspended solids (TSS) and up to 99% of biological oxygen demand (BOD) in the wastewater. We further clean and sanitize using advanced MBR filtration and can remove dissolved minerals.
