Harry DeLonge

In Memoriam, the late Harry DeLonge – Technology Coordinator / Beverages. Harry was revered and respected by most in the non-alcoholic beverage wastewater world. On multiple occasions, he was spoken of as the man who had forgotten more about beverage wastewater technology than most will ever know. More importantly, he was just a tremendous person. Very sadly, the world lost Harry to Alzheimer’s in 2022. A Marine Corp veteran, Harry was a Past-President of the International Society of Beverage Technologists and retired from Pepsi-Cola International after 40+ years of service (last two assignments as VP of Technical Services and VP of Manufacturing Technology with responsibilities encompassing over 300 beverage plants). He has consulted for clients, including Aqua-Chem, Evoqua Water Technologies, Keurig Green Mountain, Inc., Cadbury Schweppes, Aquatech International, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, and others. He published the manufacturing manual for Cadbury Schweppes, and wrote the Pepsi-Cola International Production Manual and Pepsi’s “Guidelines for Selecting Wastewater Treatment Technology.” Harry is the inventor of the Siemens Heat Optimized Technology (“H.O.T.”), currently owned by Evoqua, for carbon towers currently installed in several plants (Coca-Cola, Minute Maid, Cott Beverages, Anheuser-Busch, etc.). Well-published in these areas and other food and beverage technologies, he was awarded many US and International patents in water treatment, wastewater treatment technology, and water reclamation systems. Despite inventing the H.O.T. system, Harry was thrilled about believing our SH2O technology was better. Into his late 80s, Harry was a driving force in furthering our technology.
