Water and Wastewater Treatment in the Food & Beverage Industry

Trend Report: Why water conservation is the number one priority for the future of the Global F&B Industry.

By: Food & Beverage | June 13, 2024 | Reading time: 2 minutes

As global water scarcity intensifies, optimization, water recycling, reuse and treatment is becoming one of the most effective ways of protecting this increasingly threatened resource. In response to the unfolding global crisis and to the specific challenges that face the F&B sector, new trends are evolving. How can you harness these developments in wastewater treatment to significantly contribute towards your sustainability goals and reduce your total cost of ownership - yet maintain profitability and your brand reputation?

Protecting Our Planet's Lifeblood

Foreword from the President of Food & Beverage, Diversey

Water is our planet's lifeblood. It is essential in keeping our environment, economy and society healthy. However, the status of this most precious of commodities is increasingly precarious. Rapid population growth, climate change and geopolitical instability are creating unprecedented pressures. Approximately 771 million people lack access to clean water, which equates to a staggering 1 in 10 people on the Planet1.

With the increasing scarcity of drinking water, the reduction of water being sent to waste, and the reuse of wastewater streams is becoming an urgent ecological and economic priority. Although in the past, conserving water or using it smartly may not have been a key priority for the F&B production sector, the new realities are dramatically changing the approach to water treatment. Optimizing water consumption and reusing wastewater is critically important.
