We offer a wide range of membranes, adsorbents, and ion exchange resins to recover, isolate, and purify nutritional products, helping your facility achieve higher yield and consistent quality. The large volumes and challenging composition of the wastewater, combined with the increasing cost of water supply, has made efficient wastewater disposal a commercial priority for most Food & Beverage companies. Anaerobic methane and energy production are also being more commonly used in municipal waste treatment plants to provide heat and electricity. Veolia South Africa services and maintains more than 15 food and beverage water treatment plants throughout Africa. Our treatment plants are engineered to perform for an industry leading 25 years. The Amagel process is faster, uses less energy, and requires less space; and Amagel rapidly dewaters sludgy waste which promotes adaptive reuse of byproducts, helps prevent purifications, and simplifies disposal. Memthane® is an Anaerobic Membrane Bio-Reactor (AnMBR) which maximizes renewable energy production while producing superb quality effluent that can be reused or discharged directly to sewer. Smaller pore sized RO membranes are problematic because of energy requirements, and also because of the volume of wastewater produced at the same time pure water is made. The latter post-milk processing is the largest contributor to wastewater production and to the strength of the wastewater. U.S. Water can assist food and beverage facilities with understanding the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements to implement a compliant water treatment and sanitation program. Our solutions diminish the overall water footprint of manufacturing plants while reducing downtime and OPEX, allowing our customers to operate more efficiently than ever before. This results in more efficient BOD and COD removal because higher MLSS concentration results in lower food to microorganism ratios, which is particularly important in the case of high-strength food and beverage processing effluents that would otherwise need an aeration tank with three or four times the volume.

Rotary drum screens and Dissolved Air Flotation Systems (DAF) are effective and efficient methods to remove organic waste from food and beverage wastewater. Apart from obvious health and safety concerns , water has a significant impact on the overall quality and taste of your product. Food and Beverage manufacturing process is typically water resource-intensive and the resultant wastewater often contains high concentrations of total suspended solids, high levels of organic and inorganic pollutants; with significant levels of dissolved fats and traces of pathogenic organisms and pesticides not uncommon. Food and Beverage manufacturers rely upon their utility operations to provide reliable steam and cooling water to support their production needs. Water treatment processes help food and beverage companies ensure regulatory compliance, promote quality control, protect brand reputation, and decrease operating costs. Some industrial facilities are permitted to discharge water to public treatment works if they follow pretreatment processes such as for solids removal, biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) reduction and pH adjustment. In addition, many wastes or treated residues are amenable for land application as beneficial soil amendments or fertilizers, which can mitigate much of the wastewater discharge concerns; however, even those approaches can be problematic if excessive nutrient runoff occurs, particularly in cold weather. A customer-focused culture combined with a portfolio of more than 350 proprietary technologies makes Veolia a preferred partner for all water and wastewater related projects. Solids screening and recovery systems are critical for the proper function of biological or other downstream wastewater treatment systems.
