Many food processing plants today are literaly washing profits down the drain. This industry typically uses a large volume of water to process food products and clean plant equipment, yielding large amounts of wastewater that must be treated. This publication discusses how one food processing company became aware of its wastewater problems and reduced costly waste with assistance from the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service and the North Carolina Pollution Prevention Program.
