Longtime Experience in the Needs of the Industry

Food processors and beverage manufacturers typically use high volumes of water as an ingredient or as part of the sanitization process and, as is often the case in those processes, much of that water is removed or discarded. As a result, food and beverage processors generate wastewater that must meet changing environmental regulations, while rising costs for disposal and increasing utility costs drive the need for on-site treatment solutions.

Once we design a food wastewater system to meet your unique needs, we can recommend the appropriate chemicals to ensure peak performance, and we can even maintain the system for you if you like. It’s all part of our single-source responsibility model, which holistically addresses every aspect of your water treatment needs – from compliance assessment, to system design, installation, chemical supply, and more – to ensure success. To meet this goal, we go as far as making some of our major components, such as filter presses, in house. This guarantees that they meet our rigorous standards.

MacDermid Envio’s comprehensive technologies and experience provide treatment solutions from pretreatment to direct-discharge and/or water reuse, including custom applications for dairy, soft drink, fruit and vegetable processing, snack foods, bakery and more. These turnkey solutions help MacDermid Envio’s food and beverage customers realize long-term efficiencies, stringent environmental compliance and overall positive impact to their bottom lines.
