pH Wastewater Management for Food Processors

Part 2 of 2: Virtual training webinar

Feb. 10, 2022, 10 a.m., Online webinar

Join us for the second webinar in our two-part webinar series where food processors can learn how to control the pH in their wastewater.

Learn to analyze the various food processing wastewater streams and make simple adjustments to the pH on-site.

Training dates and registration

Join us for the second webinar in our training series. Please register in advance.

Note: To register for Part 1: Feb. 8 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., visit the Part 1 event page.

Overview: What you will learn

In the second webinar, you will learn about:

  • Current wastewater treatment technologies.
  • How to identify and implement the best “pH management technology” for your food processing facility.

Certificate of Completion

You will receive a certificate after completing an online test. The test will ask you to demonstrate a minimum level of understanding of the training information presented. This test will occur after the second webinar.

Background

Most food processing facilities generate wastewater, which is discharged to a municipal system. In some cases, this can result in:

  • Surcharges that can increase your operational costs.
  • Imbalances to your local, municipal wastewater treatment systems.

By monitoring and controlling water, chemical usage, and “shrinkage” (i.e. loss of various ingredients during processing), your wastewater volume can be reduced and make on-site municipal treatment easier.

Wastewater streams within the food processing facility can be collected, tested, and treated on-site prior to discharge into municipal sewer systems. One of the simpler and more effective on-site wastewater treatment methods is pH remediation.
