Crucial throughout food processing, the food and beverage industry is one of the largest water consumers globally. Though composition of wastewater generated by manufacturers varies, it often has high-organic strength and poses unique challenges with fat, oil, and grease (FOG). Trust solutions from EnviroZyme® to:
Nitrogen-rich compounds, such as proteins and amino acids, are common in food and beverage plants’ wastewater. Removal of ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates is an important and difficult process to maintain. Sources of nitrification problems include environmental factors, toxicity, solids washout, and loading variation, but EnviroZyme can help. We offer solutions to:
Each cluster of food and beverage manufacturing has a range of wastewater compositions that vary with daily and seasonal batch fluctuations, requiring advanced treatment.
Treatment efficacy is determined by the types of microorganisms present and the biomass's capacity to break down specific contaminants and adjust to variations in the waste stream.
Our blends are much more effective than naturally occurring microorganisms. Adding them enhances microbial community health during shock loads and ability to improve effluent quality.
FOG is composed of water-insoluble triglyceride molecules, which are made up of a glycerol and 3 fatty acids (primarily palmitic, stearic, and oleic). These are challenging to break down.
The inability of many microbes to degrade fatty acids cleaved from the triglyceride creates issues like BOD removal efficiency, pH drop with acid buildup, and volatization as noxious odors.
EnviroZyme's microbial formulations circumvent these issues with demonstrated ability to metabolize a range of both long- and short-chain fatty acids.
Achieving quality, compliant effluent is highly specific to the products manufactured and processes employed. EnviroZyme offers a comprehensive facility assessment that culminates in a turnkey project plan tailored to your plant's needs, including:
Normal operations mean efficient, cost-effective and on-schedule progress. That is why we have created a product selector guide to help you troubleshoot disruptions, streamline the decision-making process, and ultimately get your plant back to normal faster.
Answer a few simple questions, and our product selector guide will pick the best product for your treatment challenge.
A brewery packaging plant is responsible for inserting ”heavy” beer, a liquid concentrate, into canned and bottle beer products. The plant in this case study handles over 50,000 barrels of beer per week and generates over 350,000 gallons of wastewater per day.Blog
Wastewater from food production is considered one of the biggest sources of environmental pollution due to the excessive amounts of nutrients and organic contaminants, including organic carbon, nitrogenous organics, inorganics, suspended and dissolved solids, and high biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and chemical oxygen demand (COD).Case Study
A juice company began biological treatment to help control the physicochemical parameters in their effluent. Physicochemical parameters are physical and chemical conditions that affect water quality, like pH and temperature. To comply with the juice company'sstandards, levantine intermediate water (LIW) from the natural juice manufacturing processes were treated with EnviroZyme® FOG Digester 5B.Case Study
For the period of 1 year, an EnviroZyme® WWT product was applied in a municipality's activated sludge plant, which was experiencing difficulties settling due to a high level of grease in its 5 MGD influent and resulting filamentous bacteria. In addition, the plant operators were seeking methods to reduce the high costs incurred dealing with their elevated amounts of secondary sludge.Case Study

A production plant in the pork supply industry faced issues with grease clogging production pipelines and causing foul odors. From July 29 to October 29, EnviroZyme® Concentrated Grease Control 10X was added to the pipes once a week to determine whether or not it would be effective against the ongoing grease problems.
EnviroZyme formulates and blends high-quality strains, as well as IP-owned microbes to deliver custom solutions for your plant's unique needs. We can match your wastewater’s composition to specific bacteria based on the enzymes they produce.
