White Papers and Case Studies For The Food & Beverage Industry

  1. 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.

  2. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Degassing Modules Improve Ice Production At The Ice Palace In Moscow
    8/10/2017

    An innovative approach to high quality ice production has been adopted by the new Ice Palace in Moscow.

  3. Using ‘TransMembraneChemiSorption’ (TMCS) For Ammonia Removal From Industrial Waste Waters
    7/4/2017

    Dissolved gases like NH3, H2S or NOx in waste water lead to contamination in the sewage system and high treatment costs for municipal waste water treatment plants. 

  4. 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.

  5. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors Provide An Easy, Flexible Solution For Managing Dissolved Oxygen In Hard Cider
    7/11/2017

    Controlling dissolved oxygen (DO) levels during beverage production is vital for ensuring consistent product quality and shelf life. This is particularly true for canning, where high DO levels can cause breakdown of the can lining, corrosion and even leaking – which in turn can result in product waste and customer dissatisfaction. In some cases, can supplier warranties have exclusions for high DO levels.

  6. Advanced Membrane Degassing Technology For Radiation Source Term Reduction And Corrosion Control In Nuclear Power Plants
    7/4/2017

    Dissolved gas control in a nuclear power plant’s water system, including the primary make-up water storage tank and refueling water storage tank, can be essential to reduce radiation source term (defined as a release of radioactive material). In particular, controlling dissolved gases can also help reduce the formation of unwanted radionuclides, such as 14C and oxides of 60Co, and alleviate primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC).

  7. 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.

  8. ETS-UV Project Profile Industrial Beverage Bottler
    2/11/2016

    Our client was established in 2004 as a bottler/packer of teas and sports drinks for major suppliers around the globe. This 24-hour operation employs over 150 people and operates three, eight hour shifts. The facility is a proud recipient of the OCIA designation, which means they run an all-organic production facility.

  9. 5 Approaches to Treating Wastewater in Beverage (Dairy) Production
    5/10/2016

    The dairy industry undertakes a number of activities that involve converting raw milk into milk, butter, cheese and yogurt using processes such as chilling, pasteurization, and homogenization

  10. 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.
