Monroe Environmental has extensive experience working with plants, engineers, and operators in the food and beverage industry. Food production creates a variety of liquid wastes which often contain high levels of FOG (fats, oils, and grease), starch, BOD, and solids which require modified treatment processes compared to other wastewater treatment applications. Correctly targeting each pollutant for economic and efficient treatment is of upmost importance.
Air pollution can be a serious challenge for in-plant operations (OSHA regulations) and exhaust emissions (EPA permits). Oils, particulate, moisture, and acid/alkaline gasses are often simultaneously present in a production process. Each of these requires special consideration for proper capture, filtration, neutralization, and disposal.
Monroe Environmental understands successful air pollution control of common production equipment such as dryers, ovens, cooking kettles, spray coating lines, and many other processes which produce irritating and harmful constituents.
Monroe is well versed in specific industry requirements such as utilizing food-grade motors, instrumentation, and materials of construction (stainless steel, etc.). We have the experience necessary to offer custom treatment solutions for difficult applications where conventional treatment systems have failed. We have successfully completed projects for the following food and beverage production processes:
