Food & beverages

Food and beverage production is one of the largest industries in the world. Since the water used becomes part of the product, water quality is especially important in this area. Depending on the type of production, food manufacturers require systems for filtration, softening, partial and complete desalination, as well as disinfection of the water. Whether for the treatment of well water, city water or other water sources, H+E supplies the right technology for your industrial water treatment. Our plants stand out with their operational safety, resource conservation and high degree of automation.

Various types of waste water are generated in the production process. Some are heavily contaminated by product residues, as is the case with sugar beet washing water. Other streams are polluted with salt, such as waste water from bottle washing plants. H+E has wide-ranging experience in many industries and can offer you expert advice – for example in yeast, potato and milk processing as well as sugar, beer and juice production. From anaerobic pre-treatment or the aerobic stage with nutrient elimination up to a complete turnkey plant, we plan and deliver every conceivable waste water plant for the food and beverage industry.

“We need a temporary, containerised and, if required, modularly expandable water treatment plant. Can you offer us a solution?″


“We have a lot of experience with containerised, expandable solutions. In less than four months, for example, we delivered a containerised ultrafiltration plant to a German sugar factory. This enabled our customer to start operations in time for the beginning of their campaign.″


“We need a quick servicing, or an analysis and assessment of our plant which was not supplied by your company. Can you help us with this?”


“Our service department will offer you an analysis and assessment of your plant – regardless of which supplier it comes from. We specialise in the optimisation of anaerobic and aerobic stages.”


“In the future, we will have to discharge directly and therefore need expert support in the realisation of a new, in-house waste water treatment system. It will have to comply with all legally prescribed limits. How can you help us here?”


“We would be pleased to prepare a concept based on your waste water data. Then we would plan, build and install your new waste water treatment plant. An example of this is our Egyptian customer Nile Sugar’s state-of-the-art plant (link to Nile Sugar Egypt Case History).”
