Chicken Processing Plant – Wastewater Treatment
Cleaning up Waste Water
Reducing: TSS (Total Suspended Solids), BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand), Ammonia, H2S (Hydrogen Sulfide), and Sludge Reduction in a Chicken Processing Plant.
A large chicken processing and rendering plant in Southeast Georgia was faced with numerous problems associated with the treatment of wastewater at the plant. The plant has a daily flow of 1.8 million gallons of water. The first problem was a heavy fats, grease and oil build up on the surface of a 10,000 gallon grease trap located down-
To address the sludge cap problem on the grease pit Bio10grz was applied through a pressure sprayer at a rate of 8-
To address to TSS, COD/BOD, ammonia nitrogen, and hydrogen sulfide problems in the aerated ponds Bio10 was the recommended product. Pond #1 (4.5 million gallon capacity) was shocked with 75 gallons (17 ppm) and Pond #2 (14 million gallon capacity) was shocked with 175 gallons (12 ppm). The shock treatment was applied with a high pressure hose to provide a more uniform coverage of the pond surface area and allow for better blending of the product into the wastewater. A daily maintenance program was implemented where 5-
There was a significant reduction in hydrogen sulfide odors with 48 hours of treatment. After 30 days of treatment the TSS and COD/BOD levels on average were reduced by 60-
The OrganicPro products used in this application far exceeded original expectations.
