Abstract: This research work explores to improve the resource efficiency, reduction in waste water and to reduce losses of raw materials during manufacture in a beverage making industry. A series of advanced cleaner production technologies was proposed in this study. It was noted that cleaner production technology exercises are not only desirable from the environmental point of view, but they also make good economic sense, as they contribute to the bottom line by conserving resources like energy, raw materials and manpower, improving yield and reducing treatment/disposal costs. The study is a resource promoting widespread adopting and implementation of Cleaner production technologies in other industries to achieve sustainable development.
