Page 3 Siemens Water Technologies Water is a Global Crisis in the Making By 2025, Demand for Water Will Exceed Supply Source: Valmont Water Management Group Some other analysts put this point 10 years earlier
Page 4 Siemens Water Technologies Water Reuse - Overview Nearly all major Food & Beverage companies have Sustainability goals related to water and energy usage Water Ratio – Water usage per unit of product Energy Ratio – Energy usage per unit of product Water conservation and awareness should be the initial focus, and then water reuse. Water Reuse is a key tool for reducing your plant’s water ratio
Page 5 Siemens Water Technologies Water Reuse - Overview (Continued) Identifying water reuse opportunities starts with a “Water Balance” of your facility Metering is needed to identify where water is going and to measure your success First find your water reuse opportunities that require minimal treatment. These are your “Low Hanging Fruit”: Maximize Condensate Return Empty Container Rinse Water Any water stream can be reused with enough treatment. The key is to find the right streams and the right solution that will provide an economically justifiable project.

Page 7 Siemens Water Technologies In-Plant Cascading Water Reuse The easiest and least expensive method of water reuse is capturing water used in the plant before it gets contaminated with other waste streams: Carbon Tower Backwash Multi-Media Backwash Cooling Water for Compressors Empty Container Rinse Water Steam Condensate Discharge from Container Cooler/Warmer Pump Seal Water CIP System Final Rinse Rainwater
Page 8 Siemens Water Technologies In-Plant Cascading Water Reuse These water streams are easy to capture and require minimal treatment for reuse Match the water quality needed with the water streams that are available. Some possible uses of reuse water include: Irrigation Cooling Towers Crate Washing Warmers/Coolers Toilet Flushing Truck Washing

Page 10 Siemens Water Technologies Case Study No. 1: Carbon Tower Backwash Reclaim Carbonated Soft Drink Plant Carbon towers are used to treat ingredient water at a soft drink facility After initial flush to drain, carbon tower backwash water is captured in a 10,000 gallon storage tank. Collected water is re-chlorinated and filtered by a bag filter and a cartridge filter to capture any carbon fines. Reuse water is blended back into the incoming city water tank at no more that 10% of total flow. Saves 10,000 gallons of water for each backwash.
Page 11 Siemens Water Technologies Rainwater Harvesting – General Guidelines Use rain water to reduce city water usage in non-critical applications: Irrigation Toilet Flushing Cooling Applications Feed water to in-plant water treatment system Works best in areas with high annual rainfall Recommendation: Capture rainwater from the roof rather than parking lots due to oils and other contaminants. Numerous successful projects in Portland and Seattle areas on commercial buildings. This trend can be applied to industrial facilities as well.

Rain Water Harvesting & Treatment System Includes : In-Ground Rain Water Collection Tanks with Submersible Pumps – (2) Central Collection Tank – 5,000 Gallons Transfer Pumps (2) Multimedia Filter & Bag Filter Treated rain water goes into their incoming city water tank for treatment by the plant ingredient water system.

Page 20 Siemens Water Technologies Non-Carbonated Beverage Facility Case Study Example No. 3 - Reject Recovery RO Reject water collected from RO and Nanofiltration Units Recovery RO sized for 90 gpm permeate Recovery RO cost approximately $100,000 Annual water savings of 20,000,000 gallons Annual water savings of $120,000 based on $6 per 1000 gallons for incoming water and wastewater treatment Payback in about one year! Reject Recovery RO
Page 21 Siemens Water Technologies Reject Recovery RO’s Reject Recovery RO’s have become very common in F&B Facilities with membrane water treatment Bottled Water Facilities Carbonated Soft Drink Facilities Non-Carbonated Beverage Facilities Food Production Facilities Suitability can be limited based on water chemistry. Areas with high silica have limited application. Don’t run at over 50-60% recovery rate due to high scaling potential. Water chemistry is critical.

Page 23 Siemens Water Technologies Treatment of Plant Effluent Water The technology exists to treat any Food & Beverage plant wastewater back to potable water quality. If the plant already has a wastewater treatment system, then the economics of water reuse could be much more favorable. Advancements in membrane technology are making water reuse more viable. Membrane Bioreactors (MBR) is the leading technology for wastewater reuse.
Page 24 Siemens Water Technologies Defining Requirements for Water Reuse Objectives of treatment: To remove contaminates (organics, inorganics, suspended, dissolved) to a quality for beneficial reuse. Typical Processes: Removing Organics – Biological Degradation (anaerobic/aerobic), increased use of MBR or UF polishing Remove Suspended Particles – Clarification and Filtration, increased use of MF and UF membranes Remove Inorganic Dissolved Constituents - Reverse Osmosis, Microfiltration Softening, Demineralization (increasingly, Integrated Membrane Systems (UF+RO+CDI)) Disinfection (pathogen inactivation) – Chlorine, UV, Ozone
Page 25 Siemens Water Technologies What is a Membrane Bioreactor? The substitution of a membrane separation process for activated sludge secondary clarification and tertiary filtration. Membrane Bioreactor
Page 26 Siemens Water Technologies MBR MBR (Membrane Bio Reactor) process uses membranes as an absolute barrier with very small pore size which gives a very clear treated water.

Page 30 Siemens Water Technologies Water Reuse - Summary The economics of water reuse can vary widely depending on your circumstances: Cost of water and sewage in your location Availability of water (limitations on production) Volume of water used in your facility Impact of droughts on your region Public acceptance of water reuse in the Food & Beverage industry is limited. Currently projects are only for non- ingredient applications. Consider all of your water streams when looking for water minimization and water reuse opportunities (see next slide).
