INNOVATIONS FOR ECONOMIC PRETREATMENT OF FOOD PROCESSING WASTES
Abstract:Industrial pretreatment systems can be an important aspect of allowing economic growth without overloading existing municipal treatment plants. Finding economic means of providing reliable pretreatment has become a goal for industries, designers and Cities alike. Two food processing facilities determined that providing substantial pretreatment systems on site was the most effective way to meet their needs and the City's requirements. To meet their pretreatment goals, unique solutions were developed to minimize the capital and operating costs of each system. The innovative systems outlined in the two case studies presented range from grease removal systems, aerobic and anaerobic biological treatment, and solids separation. Operating data is provided with a summary of effluent quality from each facility. As more experience is gained in these types of systems, wastewater pretreatment needs can be met without great impacts on the industry's bottom line.
