  • Wastewater Pre-Treatment for the food industry (vinegar and dressings)

    Description of the plant Highly polluted wastewater arises from the production of high-quality vinegar, delicatessen and mustard products. Most of the COD load here is formed by lipophil substances which have to be decreased before to municipal sewer net. Peaks of load and flow are buffered in a mixing and balancing reactor to achieve an homogenised flow to the ...

  • What Is Industrial Wastewater Treatment?

    Industrial progress has helped economic and social growth to a large extent, whereas, it has also created the major problem of environmental pollution at the same time as well. Industrial pollution is one of the major concerns of industries and environment protection agencies worldwide. The technical advantages have assisted the industries to reduce water pollution to a certain level. ...

  • Anaerobic Digestion Reduces Microplastics in Sludge

    Anaerobic digestion can help remove microplastics — a large cause of water pollution — during the sewage treatment process Microplastics, or tiny fragments of plastic, include microbeads, the plastic pellets present in thousands of household and personal care products, including toothpaste, cosmetics, and beauty scrubs. They also include fragments from the breakdown of anything in our ...

  • Where Is the Most Water Reuse Taking Place?

    Water reuse is becoming increasingly important as water scarcity becomes prevalent throughout the world. Whether it’s referred to as water reuse, water recycling, water reclamation, or another name, the resulting purified wastewater can be used in many applications, both potable and nonpotable. In some places, water reuse has been slow to catch on, particularly because of the so-called ...

  • Wastewater Treat Ability in the Food and Beverage Industry

    Abstract Wastewater treatment is a concern in most industrial sectors. However, the food and beverage industry is potentially more concern than most. The food and beverage industry is traditionally a user of large volumes of water. The cost of water is rising sharply in many countries around the world, often related to the higher costs of delivery of high quality potable water as well as the ...


  • Electrocoagulation Wastewater Treatment: Specialized Technology to meet the needs of food & beverage wastewater

    The effects of water scarcity and stricter environmental regulations placed on water usage are increasing the cost of using freshwater globally. The consequences of these increasing costs on food and beverage companies are twofold, since the companies are charged for both the water that they utilize in their processes and on their wastewater discharge. Additionally, the food and beverage industry ...

  • Novel Hybrid PBR-UASB System for the Treatment of Highstrength Pet Food Wastewater

    ABSTRACTPet food industrial wastewater contains high concentration of oil and grease (O&G) which is difficult to treat using conventional biological systems. In this study, anaerobic treatability of pet food wastewater was evaluated in a hybrid packed bed reactor-upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (PBR-UASB) treatment system. The PBR was packed with sol-gel/alginate beads containing immobilized ...

  • Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) production potential of activated sludge from food industrial wastewater treatment process

    Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) production by activated sludge treating food industrial wastewaters was evaluated. Influence of wastewater characteristics on PHA production activities of non–acclimatised and acclimatised sludge were determined. Acetate, glucose and butyrate were used for evaluating PHA production potential of sludge at different concentrations of 400, 800 and 1,200 mgC/l during 12 ...
