Food & Beverage


Food & Beverage

Food & beverage as well as agricultural industries require a lot of water for their production, while correspondingly they generate large volumes of waste water out of the production process as well. Waste water from these industries generally has a high organic content, which needs to be removed prior to discharge into the environment.

Due to the nature of the food processing or beverage industry, requirements to the process water used in the production process in these industry segments are extremely high. This comes along with a need for high quality water treatment systems.

De.mem Products and Solutions

De.mem offers a wide range of systems and solutions for the food & beverage and agricultural industries and many of their subsegments: I.e., the flavours & fragrances industry, dairy or meat production, food processing, bottling plants, fruit juice manufacturing, breweries, wineries and many others.
Process water is subject to diverse requirements and De.mem can offer different types of filtration systems or concentration systems to address these needs.

Wastewater from food industries generally contains high turbidity, solids and oil and grease load. De.mem can provide systems that remove such contaminants.

Treatment systems can make use of air floatation, API separators, CPI separators or dissolved air floatation-flocculation units and oil skimmers. Treatment of waste water can happen through anaerobic and aerobic process using Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB), MBR, SBR, clarifier and chemical addition.

De.mem is also able to supply ottling plants that require de-gassing or the addition of CO2 gas through a membrane system, ozone/UV disinfection, addition of nitrogen (nitrodoser) and packaging plants (sourced from partner vendors).
