Product Description

Strategies for a Cost Effective and Compliant Water Treatment and Recycling Plan


There are increasing pressure on water resources through increasing demands from urban and industrial growth, in addition to focus on environmental sustainability. The agriculture and food processing sectors have been directly affected by new regulations and tariffs imposed on water usage and disposal. Specifically, the cost of water usage and ever increasing stringent regulations on wastewater quality has now made water management increasingly significant. Recycling of water is a central theme of water management as more efficient usage leads to less consumption and hence reduced volumes of wastewater requiring treatment. An efficient water management system can save a SME up to $200,000 per year.

This session with expert speaker Keith Warriner will principally focus on water management within the vegetable processing industry although the principals apply to all sectors of the food industry. Keith will present background information on different water sources and associated chemical/microbiological hazards. You will learn about the different uses of water within processing and the metrics used to assess quality attributes.

The session will share working examples on how the characteristics of the wastewater defines the technologies (biological, physical, chemical or combination) that can be applied with reference to the intended end use (return to processing, irrigation or disposal). Finally, you will learn about the various approaches to improving water management systems.
