Water recovery and re-use for European dairy producers

Published: 02/02/2017

Water recovery and re-use is increasingly common within dairy processing sites of European Dairy Association members. Innovative water treatment technologies, such as reverse osmosis, allow sites to recycle waste water for reuse across dairy operations from cleaning the filling lines to pasteurising the milk. Several sites in the EU have introduced this technology. Significant steps are also being taken to improve the quality of waste water and to reduce the impact on water basins.
