Abstract
Reclamation of fruit processing wastewater by biological treatment, granular media filtration, and disinfection with chlorine, and reuse of the reclaimed wastewater for fruit washing and conveying, and for direct contact container cooling, was investigated over three seasons for its health effect implications. It was concluded that the reclaimed effluent had no adverse effect on product quality. It is recommended that this technology be applied to other processing plants for high acid foods packed in sealed containers, with certain safeguards to protect product quality. It was recommended that application of this technology to plants processing low acid foods be initiated, with additional care and attention to reclaimed water quality.
