Wastewater treatment plants become an economically profitable project in the case of biogas production – obtaining heat, electricity, organic fertilizers.

Among the main consumers: breweries, confectioneries and dairy companies, beverage production.

Sustainable solutions for the food industry

Modern wastewater treatment from various food industries can include the restoration of both energy and water – to minimize the negative impact of the plant on the local environment and nearby settlements.

As the finishing technologies progress and improve, the overall development of food and beverage production is also being improved by significantly reducing energy and water consumption, reducing the carbon footprint and environmental impact in general. This has given rise to many enterprises and helped to strengthen their market position.

Depending on the nature of the production and manufactured products, the wastewater from food processing can contain a wide range of concentrated impurities, organic pollutants of various levels, particulate matter, oils, oils and fats (FOG), proteins and even ammonia.

With a portfolio of advanced anaerobic, aerobic and physico-chemical treatment technologies, the joint developments of Ecodevelop and GWE are ready-made specialized solutions that will effectively cope with your production waste and, where possible, will allow the generation of renewable energy and useful end products to obtain additional benefits.

Anaerobic treatment

Anaerobic treatment is highly-effective in the removal of biodegradable organic compounds, and especially suitable for organic wastes and wastewater streams which are highly-loaded with organic contaminants (COD). It effectively converts organic material to mostly methane gas and carbon dioxide, with minimal excess sludge generation. With thirteen different, highly-efficient anaerobic technologies in our  portfolio, you can be sure to receive an optimal solution adapted to your local conditions and requirements.

Wastewater streams from food and beverage, biofuels production, pulp and paper mills, and other industries, are often highly loaded with organic pollutants and can be treated advantageously by various anaerobic processes.

Undoubtedly the biggest advantage of anaerobic wastewater treatment processes is the production of biogas as a by-product of the treatment process.

Another significant benefit, which has a positive environmental and economic impact for companies and municipalities, is a significantly lower sludge production rate in comparison aerobic treatment processes.

Over the last few decades, our technologies have been evolving along with changing markets and customer needs. But just like 30 years ago, also today many variables influence the selection of the optimal wastewater treatment technology.
