Food and Beverage Industry Solutions

Up to 70% of the world’s fresh water usage is for agriculture purposes, meaning everything we eat impacts the water supply. This large water need has become a critical issue for the food and beverage industry.

In the U.S., for example, there are serious water shortages in places like California, Arizona, Texas and Georgia. Lack of water impacts the ability to grow economically and sustain population growth. Since we can’t make or produce new water, it is necessary to conserve and manage water. As a major component of agriculture and manufacturing, companies consider good water management strategic to their business and a key competitive advantage with positive bottom line impacts, as well as being good for the environment.

Continued success resulted in increased production volume and the need for a solution that could handle a significant spike in high strength brewery waste. It had to be cost-effective and meet the confines of the brewery’s limited footprint.
