Recycling Earth’s Rapidly Shrinking Resource

Water is required throughout a food and beverage facility for various uses, including makeup water for cooling towers and boilers, washing of equipment and input for the production of goods. That water can be delivered through a supply connection from a municipal system, extracted from the local environment’s natural water supply—such as a ground well—or reclaimed from existing wastewater from the facility’s processes with advanced reuse treatment, lowering the plant’s fresh water requirements. Since water is an essential element in food or beverage operations, reusing it can reduce a business’s water usage ratios, help meet sustainability goals, lower supply risk and contribute to cost savings, making it a top priority for many companies today.
