RWL Water is a leading-edge sustainable water, wastewater and reuse solutions company. With more than 7,000 successful installations and strong customer references in more than 70 countries, RWL Water has proven its capability to provide innovative global water, wastewater and energy solutions whenever and wherever they may occur.

Access to water is critical for the food and drink industry, both in terms of quantity and quality. Clean water is an important product because it is a main ingredient and key processing element in all food manufacturing processes. There are two main challenges facing the food and beverage industry in terms of water use: reducing levels of process water consumption by improving water efficiency without compromising food hygiene requirements and maintaining sustainable water supplies throughout the food chain, including agriculture.

The food and beverage sector is a multi-billion dollar market for water, wastewater and wastes technologies; the global industry uses around 65 km3 per year. The sheer diversity of the products, processing steps, and treatment needs of food and beverage companies facilitates access to the market. There are a number of global trends creating significant opportunities for water technology companies, including: heightened wastewater quality regulations, increased interest in environmental efficiency and growing water scarcity concerns will ensure that capex on water technologies by Food and Beverage companies will reach $6bn in 2020.

Flexible and Innovative Company

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAs a flexible and innovative company, steeped with expertise and customer relationships, RWL Water can offer quick response time and gap the bridge between efficient water management and improved (reduced) water consumption. RWL Water specializes in finding the right solution to help manufacturers reduce process water requirements and provide efficiencies throughout the plant. RWL Water is known among its customers as an experienced, highly responsive team that values relationships, understands organizations’ needs, and delivers leading-edge sustainable solutions and technical support at a competitive price.  Specifically, RWL Water’s technologies allow food and beverage plants to meet discharge quality standards in a cost-effective way, creating opportunities to reuse wastewater as feed water for boilers, equipment cleaning and other ancillary activities.

With thirty years of experience in the use of ionic exchange resins, RWL Water offers various processes for the treatment and enhancement of food and beverage products such as grape must, whey, concentrate juices, etc. Besides demineralizing or decolorizing juices, RWL Water’s processes can recover natural colors, flavors, and polyphenols from a variety of fruits and plant extracts.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAValue From Waste

Furthermore, RWL Water’s solutions create value from wastes and wastewater through anaerobic digestion plants. Due to their renewable nature, by-products and wastewater from the food and beverage industry can reduce dependence on fossil fuels and achieve lower levels of greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, the anaerobic technology produces biogas, renewable green energy, which helps to reduce both energy costs and the carbon footprint of food and beverage industry. The use of biogas opens up new applications in several fields, such as high tech process energy for industries, effective small-scale power generation, flexible energy production method, and more.

The food and beverage industry is committed to reducing its water footprint and increasing sustainability. RWL Water’s solutions are oriented to sustainable water management by implementing water and energy reuse as well as closed-loop systems to increase operational savings for customers.
