MANCHESTER, United Kingdom - December 14, 2016 - The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation recently issued a new report, "From Scarcity to Abundance: Business Solutions for a Water Constrained World." Pentair is one of 18 companies that contributed case studies for the report, which aims to showcase innovative approaches and solutions from companies that are helping to solve the global water challenge.
Featured under the Technology Innovation section, the Pentair case study "Water Management Solutions for the Global Food and Beverage Industry, from Farm to Table," highlights Pentair's breadth of expertise across the entire food value chain from food cultivation and processing to delivery, including:
Precision Agriculture - Pentair's precision spray nozzles help protect crops through accurate chemical applications, providing improved coverage and uniformity while also helping farmers use significantly less chemical spray on their crops-thereby reducing the potential runoff to nearby surface water.
Aquaponics and Urban Farming - Pentair has been instrumental in helping commercial operations around the globe integrate traditional fish farms and plant production with its recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) technology, which uses up to 98 percent less water and can yield up to seven times more produce per acre than conventional farming.
Food & Beverage Processing - Pentair helps food and beverage manufacturers, such as bottling plants, breweries and dairy processors, efficiently manage water resources safely and effectively-from treating and purifying water used in production processes to treating wastewater for reuse or disposal.
Food Service Operations - Pentair provides clean water solutions to nearly 2 million cafes, restaurants, coffee shops, fast food venues, and grocery stores worldwide.
