Tetra Pak USA, Vernon Hills, Ill., launched Tetra Alcross RO Lite, a filtration system that helps small and medium-sized dairies extract value out of whey. Whey, a Tetra Pak whey filtrationcommon byproduct of cheese production, is often dumped as waste.

With Tetra Alcross RO Lite, it can now be turned into profit. Available in five different sizes, this system is easy to install and uses a process of continuous reverse osmosis filtration to remove excess water from the whey, tripling its concentration while retaining all of the dissolved salts, lactose, acids, proteins, fats and bacteria. This concentrated whey can then be sold on to food processors as an ingredient in a growing variety of products.
