BACKGROUND / HAZARDS PRESENTED BY SLAUGHTERHOUSE WASTEWATER
In commercial-level slaughterhouse and rendering plant applications, water is used as an ingredient, an initial and intermediate cleaning source, and/or the principal agent for sanitizing plant equipment and work areas. As a result of this extensive water use, the slaughterhouse and rendering plant industry’s primary concern is that water and wastewater is handled in the most cost-effective method and reused in whatever capacity possible to reduce costs and remain environmentally compliant.
For optimal effectiveness and efficiency, process design for each slaughterhouse and rendering plant application should be specific to your plant needs. When the main concern is to reduce regulated constituents to permissible discharge levels, a pretreatment system is often the most direct and cost-effective solution. You can achieve significant removal of suspended solids, oil and grease, and BOD by implementing a system based on the Enhanced Dissolved Air Flotation process.
