Water Technologies for Food & Beverage

Baswood provides Food & Beverage Producers with cost-effective, proven wastewater treatment solutions that dramatically reduce surcharges, achieve stricter effluent limits, and provide the opportunity to reuse water.

Companies who rely on Baswood


Typical waste streams from brewing, beverage, dairy, and food processing contain high organic levels and variable loads which often require some form of pretreatment to meet ever-more-stringent municipal discharge limits and reduce related surcharge fees. In addition, consumers and the food & beverage industry as a whole are becoming more conscientious about improving operating efficiency and reducing the impact on the environment. The Baswood BioViper™ offers a wastewater pretreatment solution that helps to satisfy both financial and sustainability goals.
