Microorganism contamination can affect the taste, color, odor, and shelf life of bottled water, soft drinks, and a wide variety of beverage products. It is critical that product or process water is free from these contaminants to ensure high-quality water that meets production requirements. Beverage production also consumes significant volumes of water globally. Reducing the associated water footprint of production through both unit process efficiency and wastewater re-use, without compromising quality, is an essential target of the industry as well. This webinar reviews the solutions available to improve the quality and safety of water used for beverage production, in addition to water reduction and re-use methods.
By viewing this webinar, you will learn about:
- The prevention of microbial contamination in beverage water treatment with the application of UV technology
- Ozone for disinfection and sanitization for bottling applications
- Advanced wastewater treatment, disinfection and re-use
