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.
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.
Since water is an essential element in food or beverage operations, reusing it can reduce a business’s water usage ratios, help meet sustainability goals, lower supply risk and contribute to cost savings, making it a top priority for many companies today.
In 1960, the Lafazanis family built its first winery in the south of Greece. Since then, the company has established a strong international presence in the Greek market, exporting its products to 10 countries around the world. Since its inception, Lafazanis has been devoted to crafting wines of exceptional quality.
A major power plant in Thailand is using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors to remove carbon dioxide from a DI water system. The system is an expansion project and will be used to feed a high pressure boiler. Liqui-Cel membrane contactors are being used to lower the CO₂ inlet into an Ionpure Electrodeionization (EDI) system. Carbon dioxide adds an ionic load to the EDI system, which can reduce the performance of the system. Manufactures of the EDI equipment suggest lowering the inlet CO₂ to reduce the load on the equipment and improve the water quality.
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.
In treating water for the production of pharmaceuticals, the concentration of gases dissolved in the water plays an important role.
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.
Farming operations to plan and control fish reproduction have been around since the 15th century and are a sophisticated, mechanized arm in the food production industry today.
A high water recovery rate is essential for this well-known soy protein manufacturer.
In Feb. 2014, the Federal Bureau of Reclamation informed central California farmers that they would receive no irrigation water from the lakes, canals, and reservoirs under the Bureau’s control due to severe drought conditions. During the previous year, the farmers were only given 20 percent of their normal allocation of water. California officials who oversee the state’s water holdings also released information that no water will be available to the farmers for irrigation. Residential users also saw severe cuts.
This video provides a simple overview of the screen’s creation, function, features and benefits. From the beginning, Parkson engineers took it a step further by working with a leading design firm to rethink the industry standard step style screen from the ground up. They reviewed current offerings on the market and improved upon the common weak points. The result is the most durable escalating screen out there – the Aqua Rhino.
Runoff from farmlands can carry nutrients, insecticides and sediment that impact source water for downstream communities.
Scientists are developing robots that might someday be able to creep through the pitch-black mines to help prevent spills. A 2015 spill from Colorado’s Gold King Mine unleashed 3 million gallons of water that fouled rivers in three states with toxins.
Whatever the setting, and however contaminated your water, BakerCorp has a solution. That's the message shared by Mehrzad Emanuel (Vice President, Filtration), Doug Herber (Vice President, Water Treatment Technology), and Bruce Lesikar (Director of Engineering) in this video presentation from WEFTEC, where they discuss BakerCorp's electrocoagulation technology and its mobile treatment platform with Water Online Chief Editor Kevin Westerling.
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.
It was named by the infamous explorer Captain John Smith after the Massachusett tribe of Native Americans, then subsequently renamed by King Charles I of England after himself. As Boston grew, the mighty Charles River proved a vital force behind its expansion, and its long and winding history a reflection of the city’s own.
Under pressure to avoid using Southern California’s endangered groundwater supply, Nestlé has announced plans to convert a Modesto milk factory into a “zero water” facility capable of extracting water from the materials it manufactures and reusing it for industrial processes.
No one enjoys being compelled to do things, especially when it dips into their wallet. For many in the industrial manufacturing and food processing sectors this is exactly what wastewater management is to them — a compulsory, bottomless money pit dug by regulatory bodies, seemingly just to make things difficult for business owners.
