Food & Beverage

Water is a critical resource in the food & beverage market where increasingly demanding environmental requirements have given rise to new technologies and working practices to create a more sustainable way of operating food & beverage plants.

The challenges to the food & beverage market typically include:

  • reduce the water intake from wells or municipalities and reduce wastewater discharge costs
  • reuse wastewater for process cleaning purposes and reuse process water from pasteurisation lines and cooling water towers
  • recover resources to use them as an energy source, heat source or sell them as fertilizer

With solid and smart solutions for sustainable water use and resource recovery, Nijhuis helps to turn a cost center into a profit center to meet the increasingly demanding sustainability requirements, lower the environmental footprint, combine productivity and energy efficiency and reduce life cycle cost at the same time.

Our concepts and systems are based on our broad experience and application knowledge within the global industry. The technological solutions are developed by multidisciplinary, specialised teams combining the experience of our global engineering and research teams based on state-of-the-art technologies and a wide range of tailor-made services.
