Document Description
The technology demonstration will be conducted at an existing commercial food processing plant. The technology will be installed within the existing processing facilities and contained within the existing property boundaries. It will employ a membrane filtration system to clean and reuse wastewater produced from the processing plant for process cooling uses, thus reducing demand for fresh city water, decreasing volume impact on the sewer systems, and reducing water conveyance energy demands (i.e. energy associated with delivering water to and carrying wastewater from the onion processing plant).
