Food & Beverage


Request Information

The Food & Beverage industry uses a large volume of water to process food products and clean plant equipment and generate high organic-strength wastewater in batch mode that must be treated.

Biowater’s wastewater system based on highly efficient biofilm technology is ideal for food and beverage applications that require pretreatment prior to discharge to a municipal sewer system.

The challenge

  • Excessive water use and wastewater production adds financial and ecological burdens to the industry and to the environment.
  • Negative local environmental conditions as smell and space required for wastewater treatment
  • Wastewater plants at food and beverage manufacturing facilities are constantly challenged by changes in influent conditions caused by load shocks, temperature changes, increases in production, changes in manufacturing operations among others
  • Discharge to municipal sewer system adds cost

Reduce, reuse, sustain

  • Reduce cost by compact and less power consuming than widely used activated sludge and MBBR solutions.
  • Reduce high surcharges to municipal sewer becoming more economical using a biological treatment system to improve the wastewater quality and reduce the surcharges.
  • Reuse treated wastewater in productions to save cost.
  • Process guarantee for performance.
  • Low maintenance cost and continuities for decades.


Industry efficiency
Biowater’s Continuous Flow Intermittent Cleaning, (CFIC®) solution for food processors will dramatically reduce water use, wastewater production, and the high costs associated with this conditions.

Energy Savings- Substantial reduction in energy consumption.
Reuse -Recycling of water and wastewater for reuse.
Effluent Quality - Superb effluent quality. 
Low Capital Costs - Reduction in capital costs by reducing the size of the membrane or tertiary treatment.
Flexible - Upgrade an existing SBR, MBR or MBBR to provide additional capacity.
Performance - Improves biological treatment which makes membranes perform more efficiently.
