Food & Beverage

Wastewaters originating from industries in the food and beverage market are known to be easily degradable and non-toxic. Food production facilities often present other challenges, for example, seasonal production variations with seasonal variations of wastewater loads. The AnoxKaldnes MBBR is a robust process that can easily handle these variations.

In some cases, the industry only needs a simple pre-treatment of their wastewater before it is discharged to the sewer system for further treatment at the municipal wastewater treatment plant. The solution is, an easy to operate single AnoxKaldnes MBBR reactor without sludge removal that provides a compact, robust and simple treatment system for removing organic matter.

In other cases, the wastewater will be discharged directly to a recipient. This normally requires not only a high removal of organic matter, but also sludge separation. Downstream of an AnoxKaldnes MBBR system, our Veolia Water Technologies partners can provide a sludge separation step. For further information about separation technologies please contact us or your local Veolia Water Technologies expert.
