Wastewater treatment solution in Food
and Beverage Industry
The application of water in the food and beverage industry is huge and multipurpose. Apart from
being an ingredient in products, the water is convenient, hygienic and inexpensive resource for
conducting cleanups and other production needs. There is a wide variation in wastewater
generated from this industry due to variation in the raw materials and products that are used.
Characteristics of effluents from Food and Beverage
The food manufacturing wastewater contains high concentrations of several organic compounds
including carbohydrates, starches, proteins, vitamins, pectines and sugars which are accountable
for high chemical oxygen demand (COD) and suspended solids. The wastewater resulted from a
series of processes (cleaning, cutting, slicing, washing, frying, salting, coating and packing) is one
of the significant source of environmental pollution if not treated properly.
Wastewater treatment process
A number of technologies are involved in treating water, used in food and beverage industries.
From removing the FOGs to treating high level BODs and CODs, there are several stages of water
treatment that help in eco-friendly discharge:
Clarification: Clarification helps remove suspended solids and particulate matter with the
help of flocculants and coagulants, which encourages settling.
Biological treatment: This step helps upgrade the quality of food and beverage industry
effluent, by decomposing the organics.
Filtration: This is used for physical, mechanical and biological separation of solids from
Reverse Osmosis: This step uses membrane based separation to recover reusable water.
Disinfection: Disinfection with water treatment chemicals and UV destroys diseasecauses organisms to prevent their spread. Process such as ozonation and ultraviolet irradiation
also help in the elimination of biological contaminants that remain in the water after treatment.
Softening: This step require water softening involves removing calcium, magnesium and
other metal cations using ion exchange resins.
Deionization: It is used for water softening, either cationic or anionic ion-exchange.
