Beverage & Food Wastewater Treatment: 4 Advantages of Electrocoagulation

With a global population of over seven billion people, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of companies in the world that produce the food and beverages that are needed to meet this global demand.

These companies require massive amounts of water to produce their products, and those products result in equal amounts of wastewater. It’s simple enough to just discharge the wastewater into a nearby stream or surface water source and be finished with it. However, with constantly changing environmental regulations and pressure to be more environmentally conscious, food and beverage companies face increasing requirements of beverage and food wastewater treatment.

Implementing or retrofitting a wastewater treatment system seems to be the obvious solution. However, it can be difficult to determine the appropriate treatment for a particular application. Especially a treatment solution that has a lower lifecycle cost and is sustainable.

One such treatment technology is specialized electrocoagulation (EC), an electrochemical process often used in primary treatment to reduce a number of wastewater constituents. This system solution is primarily used as part of an integrated food wastewater treatment system or beverage wastewater treatment system for food & beverage companies worldwide.
