Biochemical oxygen demand reduction for the food and beverage industry

The production facility for Kerry Ingredients in Johor Bahru, Johor in Malaysia had an aging wastewater treatment plant that was struggling to maintain efficient treatment as production expanded. Kerry knew that their wastewater treatment capabilities needed significant upgrading with an emphasis on improved biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) removal. With very limited space available and a requirement for continuous operation of the existing wastewater facility, while construction and installation of any new equipment occurred, the design specifications presented a significant challenge.

Wastewater Solutions for Craft Breweries Piloted at AB InBev

AB InBev is known for producing the biggest names in beer. But it also owns a number of craft breweries with distinct operational needs and challenges. One of these, Karbach Brewing Co., wanted to explore solutions for pretreating its wastewater before discharging it to the city of Houston. That system needed to remove Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) efficiently while being easy to operate and maintain. As part of its 100+ Accelerator program, AB InBev asked Baswood for help meeting its most ambitious sustainability goals. They piloted the BioViper™ system at Karbach to see how an innovative wastewater treatment system could help, in addition to lowering surcharges. The results apply to breweries large and small, in addition to other food and beverage manufacturers.
