Water is a precious resource

As the world’s population grows, so does the need for safe and sustainable food. Processing raw materials in vast quantities puts a strain on water supplies, and so we must find ways to use this valuable resource responsibly.

Because every drop of water counts, we help processors minimize wastewater, enhance efficiency and increase sustainability.

Project diversity

Although we specialize in poultry, meat and fish, our solutions are also well suited to a range of other processing industries. For example, we have created water treatment systems for sectors such as dairy, beverages and rendering.

Finding the appropriate treatment method depends on a variety of factors such as the wastewater’s pH value, temperature and presence of emulsions. Therefore, we work in close partnership with you to find the ideal solution for your needs.
