Food and beverage production operations utilize water which results in contamination with impurities. Wastewater treatment via various physico-chemical technologies is required to maximize facility water reuse, minimize environmental impact and ensure discharge limit compliance.
Contaminants can render wastewater unfit for reuse, increasing facility water demands and costs. Discharge pollutants such as phosphorus and nitrogen can act as a food source for selective aquatic organisms such as algae, excess growth resulting in oxygen depletion, this also potentially caused by the presence of organic substances. Extreme pH values, particulate matter and many metals contained in waste streams are also toxic to aquatic life and can create significant ecological damage. Failure to comply with discharge limits may also result in significant fines and even closer. Wastewater has a direct impact on sustainability, discharge compliance and total cost of ownership.
Diversey and our partners address the key wastewater issues related to dissolved and suspended solids, pH, metals, organic substances, chemical and biological oxygen demand, phosphorus and nitrogen-containing compounds. Our solutions maximize facility water reuse to reduce water consumption and disposal requirements, remove pollutants to minimize environmental impact and ensure wastewater discharge compliance.
