  • Microbiologically influenced corrosion in dairy effluent

    Abstract: In the dairy industry mild steel is used as the construction material for the effluent treatment plants, pipelines, reinforcement in concrete structures etc. The steel exposed to the dairy effluent faces corrosion due to the microbes. In the present study the role of microbes in dairy effluent on the corrosion of mild steel has been investigated. Pseudomonas sp., Streptococcus sp., ...

  • EDTA in environments subjected to disposal of dairy effluent from processing plants

    The presence of Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) in environments related to the disposal of dairy effluent has been investigated. An HPLC–UV analytical method was used to determine concentrations of EDTA in soil, surface and ground waters. Method detection limits were 1.5 mg/kg (dry weight) for soil, 1 μg/L for surface water and 2 μg/L for groundwater. A quasi one–dimensional vertical ...

  • EDTA in dairy wastewater and removal efficiency - a case study

    EDTA is the most widely used chelating agent for removal of undesirable cations in many industrial applications such as the dairy industry. It is generally considered to be non–biodegradable by conventional wastewater treatment, thereby potentially producing an environmental health risk. Under suitable conditions, however, EDTA has been reported to be effectively degraded by micro organisms ...
