Cincinnati-based MadTree Brewing Company is serious about how they make their beer. Their scientific approach means that they also pay close attention to the water they use, a message they’re more than happy to share.
In certain applications, conventional grounding of electromagnetic flowmeters can pose special challenges. This article illustrates those challenges and sheds light on a unique solution that is especially suitable for problematic applications, some of which are found in desalination facilities.
Spent hops and general brewery wastewater are natural by-products of the beer-making process and must be reused or disposed of accordingly. Some brewers are charged substantial fines for dumping high-solids wastewater into the city sewer system. With Parkson Rotostrainers, over 90% of the Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) of wastewater can be filtered out, greatly reducing the city sewer charges. Many breweries can even sell much of the spent grain and other captured solids to local farms as livestock feed, thereby profiting on an otherwise ‘waste’ product.
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.
Valley Pride Pack wanted to reduce the operational costs associated with their wastewater treatment system.
The Poultry Capital of the World is a city in northwest Arkansas in the heart of the Ozark Mountain range. Springdale, Arkansas, the fourth largest city in the state, is the headquarters for Tyson Food Corporation, the world's largest meat-producing company. The city was founded in the mid-1800s and has been a hub for agriculture and industry in the region since then. In addition, the region is home to outdoors activities like fishing, hunting, camping, boating, etc., and the natural, outdoors life is enjoyed by many residents as well as visitors to the area.

A food processing company in northern California has a small wastewater treatment plant to treat its wastewater before releasing it back to the local municipality.
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.
A high water recovery rate is essential for this well-known soy protein manufacturer.
Pumps are all too frequently one of the most overlooked and abused pieces of equipment in process automation, yet nothing moves without them and a process becomes inefficient when they don’t operate properly or completely shutdown.
At Fluence, we have more than 30 years of experience in the design, construction, and operation of waste-to-energy plants for a wide range of industrial and municipal clients. Our proprietary anaerobic treatment technologies process wastewater and sludge to produce biogas, which can be used to produce electricity and thermal energy, or which can be purified to produce biomethane for injection into the grid.
L'eau Claire upflow filters offer an alternative to conventional water clarifiers for removing suspended solids and colloidal material such as silica. Despite the influent loading, this cost-effective filtration process removes 98% of particulates ≥2 microns without the use of clarifiers, flocculation, sedimentation, dry chemical addition or mixers. Watch the video to see how it works.
A hospital had been pumping their wastewater with a submersible pump for years. But after seeing the benefits of the S&L Above Grade Wet Well Mounted Pump Station, they quickly saw the benefits - easier and safer maintenance, higher efficiency, long pump life, and more. Hear from the operator himself to learn why the hospital now prefers S&L's EVERLAST™ Wet Well Mounted Pump Station.
This video gives an introduction and overview of the unique features and benefits of the new Aquafine OptiVenn UV Disinfection system.
Three thousand litres of water — that is the amount needed to produce the food each British person eats every day. This is according to a new study into the “water footprint” of diets in Western Europe, conducted by the European Commission and published in Nature Sustainability.
Industrial companies need reliable water treatment technology, since failure of a water system may result in downtime for production, with significant financial impacts. Ultraviolet (UV) technology is used for water treatment in various industries such as microelectronics, food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, and many other industry segments.
The Greater Lawrence Sanitary District (GLSD) in North Andover, MA, was one of 28 organizations nationwide to be honored for an innovative water or wastewater project in the most recent PISCES Recognition Program sponsored by the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF). PISCES stands for Performance and Innovation in the SRF Creating Environmental Success.
By harvesting heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) condensate, industrial operations can take advantage of a cool, convenient source of clean water.
As focus on resource recovery intensifies, food and beverage operations are under a particularly large microscope. An anaerobic digester designed for the food and beverage industry can create value out of the space’s unique wastewater.
If you’ve ever looked into the ice cream freezers at your local grocery store you can imagine all the different ingredients you’d find at the ice cream factory: cream, sugar, chocolate, fruit, nuts, milk, syrups, and so on.
Anaerobic digestion is a practical and efficient technology to utilize considerable amounts of organic waste from intensive animal production and food processing and wastage during distribution/consumption, municipal waste, etc. to produce methane gas for electricity generation, local/process heating, and direct injection into the gas supply network.
Wastewater treatment operations are beginning to embrace the power of automation. How can it help? And how is it implemented?
Electricity is a major cost for industry operations, and the cost of meeting environmental regulations is right up there as well. At the same time, industries are compelled to improve sustainability and lower their carbon footprints.
Technologies which could transform the shape of the water industry of the future will be on show at the fifth BlueTech Forum, to be held in San Francisco.
Wineries and vineyards face some added environmental and economic challenges to properly treat and dispose of wastewater. Proper treatment and disposal can be costly and there are very strict regulations that must be followed.
Not all water treatment needs are the same. That’s why it’s imperative to work with those that understand the subtle differences that make each industry unique. For food and beverage companies, that means aligning with KLa Systems, a company focused on oxygen transfer with a track record of innovation in jet aeration and mixing.
With over 1,000 manufacturing sites in more than 200 countries, Coca-Cola Company knows a thing or two about water. And much of that knowledge is housed in Paul Bowen’s organization.
“Bioelectrochemistry” is a mouthful, but it’s a word you should get familiar with if your goal is sustainable, energy-efficient industrial wastewater treatment.
