White Papers and Case Studies For The Food & Beverage Industry

  1. Repair Of Major Damage To High Density Polyethylene Wastewater Pipeline
    8/13/2018

    Leprino Foods, the world's largest mozzarella cheese producer, operates two plants that share one wastewater pipeline – a 16” SDR11 High Density Polyethylene Pipeline (operating at approximately 160 PSI). During dirt work an “auger” hit the wastewater pipeline and drilled an 8” diameter hole in the line. Leprino needed immediate access to a repair fitting for this line.

  2. Carbon Adsorption & Reactivation
    8/2/2016

    Chemical, petrochemical, and oil-refining plants are process-intensive operations with regulatory requirements to protect the surrounding water and air from the effects of industrial pollution. These external demands are matched by equally compelling internal pressures to address product purification needs, find alternatives to utilizing costly fresh water in production processes, reduce the carbon footprint, and operate efficiently and profitably.

  3. IMEC UPW System Utilizes 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors For Oxygen Removal
    5/4/2017

    IMEC (Interuniversity Micro- Electronics Center) in Belgium is Europe's largest independent research center. It focuses on microelectronics, nanotechnology, and enabling design methods and technologies for ICT (Integrated Circuit Technology) systems. IMEC's research runs 3 to 10 years ahead of industrial needs.

  4. Kirin Beer Uses 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors For CO2 and O2 Removal to Prevent Pipe Corrosion at Three of Their Japanese Breweries
    6/28/2017

    In the food and beverage industry, there is a growing awareness of environmental considerations wherever chemicals are used. In response, companies are trending towards alternative systems that operate with less chemical usage.

  5. Wastewater Transformed From Problem To Profit
    9/4/2014

    Latin America and the Caribbean have rich potential to replace fossil fuels with green energy as technology delivers profitable and environmentally friendly alternative sources of heat and electricity generation.

  6. Manipulating Dissolved Gasses With SEPAREL®: Beverages
    2/28/2018

    In the beverage industry, there are many opportunities for degassing with a SEPAREL® hollow fiber membrane due to the fact that water treatment is not as elaborate as other industries. The main focuses of water treatment in the beverage industry are the removal of harmful bacteria and dissolved chemicals for health reasons as well as the conservation of water’s natural flavor by eliminating dissolved ions, particles, and chlorine.

  7. 5 Approaches to Treating Wastewater in Food (Meat) Production
    5/10/2016

    The meat processing industry consists of two major groups - slaughterhouses and packinghouses. A slaughterhouse is a plant that harvests animals and whose main product is fresh meat as a whole or smaller meat cuts. A packinghouse is a plant that both slaughters and processes fresh meat to cured, smoked, canned and other prepared meat products.

  8. Environmentally Sustainable Waste/Wastewater Treatment System For Leading Snack Manufacturer
    4/22/2016

    Jack Link’s, a leading protein snack producer, was in need of a water treatment solution at its facility in Alpena, South Dakota.

  9. Dairy Collective Reaps Green Energy And Environmental Benefits With Anaerobic Wastewater Technology
    9/16/2014

    One of the United States’ newest dairy processing plants features advanced wastewater treatment technology that not only radically improves biomass recovery and effluent quality, but also harnesses green energy from waste streams to drive production processes and reduce its carbon footprint.

  10. 99 Percent Efficient Plant Shows How To Recycle And Profit
    9/24/2015

    An outstandingly efficient industrial wastewater treatment plant using technology being introduced to Australasia is demonstrating to the food, beverage, and agribusiness processing industries how to turn waste into profit.
