Commercial technologies for wastewater treatment in reuse applications include 1) conventional treatment to remove solids, and adjust pH and chlorine levels, or 2) advanced processes that filter and oxidize water, delivering higher quality. In-plant recycling can also be employed since water is in demand for not only processing steps, but also for cleaning equipment, facilities and floors. Effectively treating this wastewater is often difficult, for reasons numerous and varied. Among water-treatment companies with a food and beverage focus, the most common anaerobic installations are dairy operations — fluid milk, cheese, ice cream, yogurt, etc. Cities worldwide are turning to GE’s drinking water treatment solutions to help optimize resources and provide high-purity water to their residents. It must be treated to levels that will not damage receiving waters due to excessive nutrients or oxygen demand when directly discharged or will not disrupt publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) when discharged to sewers. The typical allocation of water used in each process varies by industry, from about 60-65% for processing uses in the meat & poultry industry to about 15-20% for the sugar processing industry. Many conventional wastewater systems which operate on the basis of activated sludge treatment, therefore, can not handle such a large and sudden variations in BOD, COD and nutrients. These systems can treat incoming water in addition to be fed by recycled water from the wastewater treatment systems to minimize discharge and decrease overall water usage. The wastewater from food & beverage plants often contains high concentrations of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), suspended solids (TSS), fats, oils and nutrients in varying concentrations.
