Wastewater treatment will continue to be the primary pollution prevention focus for food and beverage processors. But, another industry trend for minimizing waste and improving the bottom line is converting food byproducts to value-added products. Many conversion activities offer opportunities for membranes: transforming salts in waste to useful acids and bases, recovering blood proteins from slaughterhouse wastes, or fermentating corn starch to ethanol, corn oil and other corn co-products.
Competitive technologies in food and beverage processing include a variety of media filters and other separation and purification methods including centrifugation, adsorption, evaporation, distillation, pasteurization and ion exchange.
