This paper offers a case study on a California beverage facility that set a goal to reduce their water consumption by 20%. In order to achieve that target and still meet their production goals, plant engineers, operators, consultants and members of the newly implemented sustainability committee convened and focused on the reverse osmosis (RO) system specifications to see if a higher recovery could be realized. This study will provide an insight into the sustainability goals within the beverage industry and their desire to preserve water using step-by-step processes. It also includes a discussion on the factors that must be understood and employed to ensure success and gives valuable insight for others seeking to satisfy water conservation and production goals, maintain optimal RO operation and improve and maximize future sustainability.
