Fruit Processing Wastewater Treatment
SEASONAL & ACIDIC PROPERTIES
Wastewater coming from fruit processing and fruit canning contains seasonal- and acidic properties that demand specialized treatment in order to comply with DWS* standards and recycle it for water reuse.
In order to accommodate the seasonal characteristics of the fruit processing wastewater, we utilise passive ponding systems with internal circulation to enhance the buffering capacity of the treatment system. Furthermore, with efficient organic- and mineral ‘clean up’ needed the ponding system has been designed to promote the growth of micro-algae which assist in neutralising the acidic properties of the wastewater.
