Key Features

  • Provides an overview of key drivers for better management
  • Reviews techniques for improvements in efficiency of water and energy use and waste water treatment
  • Examines house keeping proceedures and measurement and process control

Description

Effective water and energy use in food processing is essential, not least for legislative compliance and cost reduction. This major volume reviews techniques for improvements in the efficiency of water and energy use as well as wastewater treatment in the food industry.

Opening chapters provide an overview of key drivers for better management. Part two is concerned with assessing water and energy consumption and designing strategies for their reduction. These include auditing energy and water use, and modelling and optimisation tools for water minimisation. Part three reviews good housekeeping procedures, measurement and process control, and monitoring and intelligent support systems. Part four discusses methods to minimise energy consumption. Chapters focus on improvements in specific processes such as refrigeration, drying and heat recovery. Part five discusses water reuse and wastewater treatment in the food industry. Chapters cover water recycling, disinfection techniques, aerobic and anaerobic systems for treatment of wastewater. The final section concentrates on particular industry sectors including fresh meat and poultry, cereals, sugar, soft drinks, brewing and winemaking.

With its distinguished editors and international team of contributors, Handbook of water and energy management in food processing is a standard reference for the food industry.

Quotes and reviews

...this handbook is comprehensive in addressing almost all aspects of water and energy management in food processing industries, from the legislative to the technology., Journal of Cleaner Production
…well written, nicely produced, and provides an accessible source of up-to-date information on different techniques for water and energy conservation. …I am not aware of any other text that is so wide ranging in scope., Journal of Cleaner Production
…an invaluable reference to those involved in the day-to-day running of the food processing industries with an objective of properly managing energy and water usage. Although, the focus of the book is food processing, it can be used as a reference in any energy and water management course, both undergraduate as well as graduate. This book will also be useful to industrial technologists and consultants, teachers and students as well as researchers who wish to understand different methodologies for efficient water and energy management., Journal of Cleaner Production
