Industrial Process Water and Wastewater Treatment for the Food & Beverage Industry from H+E


The industrial production of food and beverages is one of the largest and fastest growing industries worldwide. H+E has project experience in the food and beverage industry over more than 35 years. In particular, H+E has provided nearly 40 worldwide installed systems for the beet sugar industry, which has given H+E industry-leading experience of wastewater treatment on a worldwide scale for this branch. But also in many other sectors H+E can offer customized solutions for industrial water and wastewater treatment, among others for the yeast, potato and milk processing as well as the beverage and brewing industry.

Challenges of our Customers

We need a temporary, containerized and if necessary expandable modular water treatment plant. Which system solutions can you offer?

We need a quick service or system evaluation of our treatment system. Can you support us – even if the plant was not designed and built by H+E?

We will get more stringent requirements for indirect discharge and therefore require expert assistance and solutions for the necessary actions like for example a suitable wastewater pretreatment. Can you help?

In the future we have to discharge the effluent directly and need expert assistance in the realization of our own wastewater treatment plant to comply with the regulatory discharge limits. Can you help us?

Due to new external factors, we are committed to partially or fully recycle our generated wastewater. Which process technology solutions can you offer? Do you have MLD/ZLD solutions?

Our existing water treatment plant needs to be modernized or replaced. Can you make us an offer for this?

Our biological wastewater treatment is regularly or permanently overloaded and we cannot meet the required discharge limits. Which technological solutions can you offer to us?

We are unconfident whether an anaerobic biological treatment is actually suitable for our demands. Are more cost-effective and process reliable systems available? What alternatives can you recommend?

We need a cost-effective and proven aeration system. Which aeration system can you recommend and offer?

We are looking for an energy-efficient, cost-effective and process reliable sludge treatment. What appropriate technologies can you offer to us?

Our production capacity is expanded and our process and wastewater amount as well as composition will change. We need to expand our existing treatment systems – if possible during ongoing production. Can you help us in this matter?
