Food & Beverage

You Focus on Production. We Handle the Water.

Food and beverage processors use large volumes of water, both as an ingredient in their products and in the plant sanitation process. The resulting wastewater must be treated responsibly.

Rising utility costs and wastewater disposal surcharges, the desire for a smaller environmental footprint, as well as growing demand from consumers for products manufactured using sustainable operations, are motivating food and beverage processors to invest in on-site wastewater treatment. However, effluent streams can fluctuate in flow and chemical composition, making wastewater treatment challenging.

Our technologies and services are designed to keep food and beverage production flowing smoothly:

  • Comply with regulatory requirements. We can help your facility meet strict pretreatment or direct discharge treatment goals.

  • Reduce or eliminate wastewater surcharges. On-site treatment can lower (or even eliminate) surcharges associated with discharging untreated wastewater to a local municipal treatment plant.

  • Reuse water. High-quality effluent can be reclaimed, reducing plant operating costs.

  • Convert wastewater into green energy. Valuable biogas can be generated from wastewater via anaerobic digestion, resulting in a source of money-saving renewable energy.

  • Become an environmental steward. Minimize your environmental footprint.


Evoqua is a trusted leader in the food and beverage market with customized solutions to overcome even the most difficult water or wastewater challenges.
