Treatment of food processing wastewater is complex and costly because of the contaminant loading and the variability of the different wastes encountered in a plant. Improving wastewater treatment is critical to reducing high water consumption, preventing pollution into water bodies and preserving public health and surrounding wildlife.
Food and beverage manufacturing produces a complex wastewater effluent often difficult to treat due to its high salinity levels and heavy loading of contaminants.
Wastewater released from this industry is turbid, with high concentrations of total suspended solids (TSS), chemical oxygen demands (COD), biological oxygen demand (BOD), fats oils and grease (FOG), and nutrients such as nitrogen (including ammonia) and phosphate.
