  • EDTA in the environment: with special reference to the dairy industry

    Ethylenediaminetetraacetic (EDTA) acid has been used as an additive to caustic agents facilitating removal of Ca, Mg and trace metals in dairy processing plants for many years. Effluents from the dairy industry are either discharged to surface waters or used in land irrigation systems. In particular, the effluents from a large dairy factory discharged to a small stream have the potential to pose ...

  • 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., ...

  • Farm digesters for small dairies in Vermont

    THROUGH its award-winning Cow Power program, Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS), a Vermont utility headquartered in the city of Rutland, is helping dairy farmers diversify their incomes by turning manure into electricity. The farmers process manure in anaerobic digesters to generate power, which CVPS customers voluntarily pay a premium to purchase. In addition to income from electricity sales, ...

  • Environmental input–output analysis of the New Zealand dairy industry

    This work presents data and analysis quantifying the total (direct and indirect) resource use and outputs (products and pollutants) of the New Zealand dairy industry for the year April 1997 to March 1998. It also identifies those sectors supplying the dairy industry which make significant indirect contributions to its total inputs and outputs. Although this data is 14 years old, it is the only ...

  • Californias Dairies have more anaerobic funds

    Producers must be able to sell excess electricity and have markets for that power if projects are to be viable, says the CEO of Western United Resource Development. APPLICATIONS are now available for funding construction of anaerobic digestion systems on California dairies. The California Energy Commission has funds of $2.3 million provided through the Dairy Power Production Program (DPPP). To ...

  • Operationalising eco-efficiency in agriculture: the example of specialised dairy farms in Flanders

    Eco-efficiencies of a representative set of Flemish dairy farms were determined for the years 19891990 and 20002001. Eco-efficiency was measured as a combination of nitrogen (N) use efficiency and energy use efficiency, where N use efficiency (l milk kg-1 N surplus) is the ratio between the amount of produced milk and the farm-gate N surplus (= N input − N output). Energy use efficiency (l milk ...

  • Analysing pre and post-liberalisation impact on Indian industries

    The Gujarat economy has contributed in the overall economic development of India. The results show that key indicators like NVA, number of registrations, GFCF, FC, value of output and the employment prospects in the manufacturing units of Gujarat economy has increased and the liberalisation policies did not make much difference. The multiple regression equations reveal that liberalisation of this ...

  • CAF Failure: www/RESOURCE DAF Success!

    This dairy manufactures fluid milk, dairy-based mixes, yogurts, and juices. For several years, the facility was using a CAF system to treat its wastewater prior to discharge. The system performed inconsistently and operational costs approached $14/1000 gallons treated. The city could not tolerate the inconsistent performance and the dairy couldnot afford the costs to operate the system. Many ...

  • Farm digester progress in Pennsylvania

    The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is home to about 7,000 dairy farms with an average herd size of less than 100 cows. While nutrient and odor management are of great importance to these farms, their overall economic viability appears to be the primary factor driving installation of anaerobic digesters over the past few years. “Pennsylvania has 30 dairy digesters and about 5 swine digesters ...

  • Project aims to produce fertilizer from wastes

    With the highest cattle density in northeastern Wisconsin and urban sprawl sprawling, Brown County has accelerated its investigation into how to handle growing amounts of dairy manure and industrial wastes spread on a diminishing land base.Applying waste on limited crop acreage has led to groundwater contamination issues and pollution problems of lower Green Bay.The solution lies in a value-added ...

  • Air emissions of ammonia and methane from livestock operations: Valuation and policy options

    The animal husbandry industry is a major emitter of ammonia (NH3), which is a precursor of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) —arguably, the number-one environment-related public health threat facing the nation. The industry is also a major emitter of methane (CH4), which is an important greenhouse gas (GHG). We present an integrated process model of the engineering economics of technologies to ...

  • Is Energy Efficiency the correct path to a lower carbon economy?

    European researchers have identified a new “fuel” that by 2030 will be more important than oil. It’s called energy efficiency − the drive to get more bang from each buck spent on power. If the European Union member states adopt a 40% energy efficiency target, the sum of energy ...

  • Bull Calves Need Care Too

    By far, most bull calves will never become a lasting benefit to a dairy herd, and as such may not always receive the same level of care that heifer calves do. Harmonizing your calf rearing programs will yield positive results for all calves and your bottom line. All calves require excellent care, especially in the first few days of life. Without adequate, timely colostrum and proper ...

  • Latest Progress in Anaerobic Digestion

    Compared to countries like Germany and Denmark, the United States and Canada have a long way to go in creating the fundamental policy incentives and regulatory mandates that will encourage market development for anaerobic digestion (AD). Someone recently asked me how many years it would take to deploy AD systems on farms in North America that are large enough to economically use them. Given ...

  • Research highlights cattle emissions reduction opportunity

    Researchers in Denmark have measured the quantities of greenhouse gases in the breath of dairy cows and demonstrated a heritable variability between individual animals. “This means that we have an opportunity to select for breeding those individuals which will produce offspring that generate less methane,” says Dr Jan Lassen who led the research project on individual methane ...
