Water may be the most prevalent resource used in the food and beverage industry, making wastewater treatment and sludge disposal a major part of your production process. Recovery, reuse, and release of this water becomes paramount—but the water often contains high concentrations of biological oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), fats, oils and grease (FOG), total suspended solids (TSS), and nutrients like minerals, nitrogen, ammonia and phosphorus.
Whether you are facing BOD surcharges or high waste hauling costs, Schreiber can help. We look for ways to accomplish both water recovery and waste minimization through high solids consolidation unit processes. Schreiber’s treatment technologies can reduce high operational costs, and our ability to simulate multiple unit processes at the bench scale can minimize costly pilot testing. Our systematic solutions approach uncovers plant process bottlenecks and develops a feasible flow sheet before the equipment arrives on the floor. When your Schreiber system is installed, your operators will find it easy to use and maintain—with lower power consumption.
