APPLICATION OF THE MODIFIED BARDENPHO WASTEWATER TREATMENT PROCESS TO THE POULTRY INDUSTRY
Abstract:Over the past twenty years, wastewater treatment system design and operation in the poultry industry has been focused on the removal of fats, oil and grease, suspended solids and oxygen demand from BOD and ammonia nitrogen. Most recently, poultry plant wastewater treatment system upgrades are being required to achieve high efficiency total nitrogen and total phosphorous removal, especially where wastewater treatment systems discharge into water bodies that drain into lakes, estuaries or water bodies that are designated as nutrient enriched. This paper summarizes the process design and performance of a wastewater treatment system upgrade to provide high efficiency nitrogen and phosphorous nutrient removal capability at a poultry processing plant in the eastern U.S.
