Water challenges

Every business in the Food & Beverage industry has its own particular water demands. Drinking water is often a fundamental product ingredient in this industry. It can be available as tapwater, groundwater, surface water or even seawater, depending on the business location. Independent of the source, treatment is almost always necessary to obtain the required quality of process water or product water. Especially today, with growing environmental awareness, emphasis on good stewardship of natural resources, and water scarcity growing even in historically water-rich parts of the world, businesses are required to demonstrate a commitment to water sustainability. 

Reuse of water helps to protect natural resources and is quickly becoming an established practice. It also makes commercial sense to boost profits through efficient water use.
