It is technically and economically feasible to renovate and reuse fruit cannery wastewater as a process water supply without adversely affecting product safety or quality. However, the chemical, physical and bacteriological quality of the renovated wastewater, along with consistency of quality, are critical in determining where this water can be reused within the processing facility. The wastewater reclaimed under this study contained no sanitary wastes. Study results indicate that it is feasible, at the test site, to reduce wastewater discharge and fresh water demand by over 50%.
