Food & Beverage Manufacturing

Sustainable Wastewater Treatment Technologies

Digested Organics offers a range of solutions to help food and beverage manufacturers reduce waste disposal and treatment costs, reclaim clean water for reuse or discharge, and generate new products.

All three of our core technologies can help manufacturers reduce BOD and TSS prior to sewer discharge, thereby eliminating or reducing surcharges. These systems are highly automated, require no polymers or coagulants, and can often replace more expensive chemical or biological processes.

We specialize in water reuse and can often reclaim a high proportion of a process or wastewater stream for use as boiler feed water, vegetable wash water, or other uses.
