Replace Water Intensive Production Equipment

Published on .

winebottlesThe food and beverage industry can realize water use reductions in the production process through simple equipment changes. For example, ionized air can be used to clean cans in place of water, while cold sanitation systems use a bleach solution rather than heated water to sanitize produced goods. Additionally, dry lubrication can be used in place of water-based lubricants to maintain bottling conveyor function. Learn more about these processes from the Brewers Association.
