Baswood provides proven cost-effective, reduced energy solutions for beverage producers who are facing rising sewer surcharges or tightening regulatory discharge limits.

Beverage Production

Are you paying excessive fees to your municipality?
Are you interested in reusing water to meet your sustainability goals?

Baswood provides an effective solution to the pretreatment of high-strength wastewater produced from beverage manufacturing. Baswood's BioViper™ system uses patented technologies to provide optimal pretreatment, requires minimal operator oversight and operating costs, and at the same time reduces energy consumption compared to other treatment options.

Do you have fluctuating loads caused by CIP or crush?
Our multiple reactor system quickly adapts to significant load fluctuation without compromising system performance.

At Baswood, we understand that wastewater treatment is necessary but does not contribute to your bottom line. Because of our extensive experience in the Beverage Industry, we know the importance of low energy, low odor, and a minimal footprint. The BioViper™ effectively addresses all of these factors—and offers a proven lowest total cost of ownership.

Baswood 10-Year Savings: $6.2 Million VS. MBR
Based on Typical Size Beverage System

Baswood achieves the leadership position in Total Cost of Operation by designing and installing systems that are competitive in upfront capital to MBR systems but cost significantly less to operate. This is primarily achieved via significantly lower energy requirement, minimum man hours, and very little sludge handling, if any.

BioViper™ BioViper™

BioViper™ Overview

We offer a technology that can handle widely fluctuating organic loads without upsetting system performance. The BioViper™ has a large, diverse biomass that adapts quickly to changing waste conditions, such as pH, while maintaining a high removal rate of digestible organic constituents.

Consistently High BOD Removal Rates

The BioViper™ offers superior digestion rates of over 80% with a reduced HRT, resulting in significant savings on BOD and other related surcharge fees for your production facility.

Lower Cost Alternative

Energy and solids disposal are your two most significant cost associated with biological wastewater treatment. Due its efficient aeration process, the BioViper™ requires 40% less energy than traditional aerobic systems, and its high solids retention and proprietary DCAD process significantly lowers the quantities of biosolids produced compared to competing technologies. The system is also highly automated and can be monitored or controlled remotely, so you won't need to hire a dedicated operator.
