Water reuse, including reclaimed recycled water, is one method food and beverage facilities can employ to alleviate business risk, enhance sustainability practices, and safeguard water quality standards by decreasing the facilities' dependency on external water sources.

Food Beverage Production (Bottling)


Many people prefer bottled water over tap water because they believe it to be a safer alternative compared to other sources of water such as tap water and it tends to taste better then water out of the faucet. America loves bottled water. According to a study done by the International Bottled Water Association, bottled water is the second most popular beverage in the US. In 2013, bottled water volume achieved an unprecedented high: exceeding 10 billion gallons. Only carbonated soft drinks out sell bottled water. 

Pure Water can cater to all of your bottled water needs. The FDA regulates bottled drinking water and has set some general Current Good Manufacturing Practices specifically for bottled water. They require bottled water producers:
  • Process, bottle, hold, and transport bottled water under sanitary conditions. 
  • Protect water sources from bacteria, chemicals, and other contaminants.
  • Use quality control processes to ensure the bacteriological and chemical safety of the water. 
  • Sample and test both source water and final product for contaminants. (Source: US Food and Drug Administration)

Production


Many food and beverage facilities use large quantities of water in their daily operations. Whether it's being used as an ingredient, for cleaning and sanitation, or manufacturing purposes, it is very important to maintain a safe water supply to ensure production of safe and quality foods. 
The reuse of water through recycling is becoming an increasingly vital component of food processing as a means to conserve water, reduce costs, and provide security of water supplies. 

Water reuse is the use of treated waste-water in non-process applications with lower quality requirements within the food and beverage industry. Reclaimed or recycled water is former waste-water that has been treated to remove solids and impurities, and is kept for second use rather than being discharged back into the environment. The amount of water that food and beverage facilities use on a daily basis impacts the local water supply and surface water quality. Reusing water is a logical way to minimize a facility's environmental footprint. 
Reclaimed water can be used in the food and beverage industry for non-product applications, such as landscape irrigation, truck washing and warehouse floor washing. The purpose of recycling water is sustainability and water conservation, rather than discharging treated water to surface water such as rivers and oceans. 

Water reuse offers a water source that is dependable, locally controlled, and not harmful to the environment. It also enables facilities and their communities to become less dependent on groundwater and surface water sources, decreasing the diversion of water from sensitive ecosystems. Besides saving water, reuse can also lead to cost and energy savings.
